    Examples of recent experience/verification?

    Do you watch any news? This type of thing makes the news all the time. How is this for one you might be interested in: I worked for a company where standards for internet security were going to influence what we did. I was a member of an international organization of private corporations developing those standards for G2 & G3. Getting more security into G2 would delay our product introduction and some other corporations also, though some others needed some delay so they were arguing for more robust security. What G4 would be was also being discussed. In our corporation there were thousands of employees and 100's of thousands of stock holders and there were ten's of us working on this and managing this. It was essentially secret otherwise. So, are you as a private citizen interested in internet security? How aware were you of the product introduction schedule vs. security for the internet a decade ago?
