"Unsafe at any speed", by Ralph Nader . Remember that one? Only this time around it might actually be true; at least until which time the right technical advances arrive.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Pentagon is looking to store the most top secret info on a new and improved cloud:

Everywhere I turn there is complexity being stacked on top of complexity. Is it just me? Or is all of this massive amount of technology going to one day become its own worst enemy? Really, the highly complex system(s) of things don't inspire confidence in me at all... In fact, when I factor in human error, known unknowns, unknown unknowns, ad hoc fixes and other risk factors including sabotage, terror attack, EMP et al., what I find myself trapped on is a neo-"Forbidden Planet".

Yes, all of this "high-tech" and endless complexity is starting to remind me of the ostensibly invincible "Death Star" or the Krell laboratory from that 1956 sci fi masterpiece, "Forbidden Planet".
