For a while now I’ve been waiting for the issue of data losses to permeate the popular media. Soaps are a great way to get people plugged into these awareness ideas. Well, I’m delighted to announce it’s happened, in The Archers of all places. Carrie’s lost the paper folder containing everyone’s weights from the slimming club. Unencrypted obviously. This is likely to be their own data Chernobyl (perhaps a better metaphor here might be the ‘data anaerobic digester?’), and the repercussions will be felt all the way to The Bull. I can’t wait to hear what happens next.
