Baytown Mayor Admits Error In Release Of Banking Info
I've written recently about The Real Problem With Computer Glitches. Computer glitches are when something goes wrong but we don't talk abut someone making a mistake or a bad process being used. Something just happened without human intervention (yeh, right). I followed that up with a comment an Another Glitch regarding Goveronor Scharzenegger and a computer glitch that kept a law student from taking the bar exam.
Although I don't want to beat this subject to death I just have to comment about an article I saw in today's Houston Chronicle, Baytown releases banking info for 10,000 by mistake. It seems that some how banking information about 10,000 people that paid tickets after being caught by a red light camera. What was interesting was how this was portrayed.
