Netiquette Quote of The Day From Steven Hawking - Via Netiquette IQ

The Heartbleed virus has caused a great deal of damage. Almost all of us have experienced a destructive virus. I, for one, am puzzled that anyone would want to bring harm to people they have never nor will ever know. Mr. Hawking's quote below is a most compelling one and I hope it will serve to have us all reflect on the damage we can do and can avoid doing!

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.” - Stephen Hawking
