Oh snap

I'm generally happier working on projects which are small and sort of grassroots-y and generally held together with duct tape, which is why if you ask anyone who works with me at RH they'll tell you I recoil instinctively whenever anyone asks me anything about RHEL (which I've still never actually run). But this is a fascinating dispatch from the Really Freaking Huge Code Systems side of the fence, talking about Google and Amazon architecture. Also has the best tech zinger of the decade:

"But I'll argue that Accessibility is actually more important than Security because dialing Accessibility to zero means you have no product at all, whereas dialing Security to zero can still get you a reasonably successful product such as the Playstation Network."

Oh, owch.
