The breakdown of San Francisco's network administrator Terry Childs serves as a warning sign to us all.

Reading about the fall of network administrator Terry Childs in San Francisco sends a chill down my spine.
Childs currently is in jail on $5 million bond for commandeering the city's FiberWAN fiber optic network. The network carries most of the city's network traffic, including employee emails, personnel information, and even law enforcement documents. Childs finally gave up the passwords following a visit to his cell last week by San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.
