The DNC Data Breach - You Were Looking In The Wrong Place

This is going to be a quick one.  Just some thoughts on today's DNC security breach.

When this happened, you know what I started combing?  Not the usual political blogs.  All we saw there was people flinging shit at whichever candidate they don't like.  So that didn't really help anyone understand anything did it?  I went immediately to the tech press.  That's right, a huge political story happened and there I was, reading the tech blogs.  This was a data breach first and a political story second if you ask me.

What I am saying here is that in a case like this, in a case where tech is at the heart of the story, it's probably a good idea to check out what the tech press has to say. 

Here's a great article on the history of data security in political campaigns, and let's just say it's not exactly pretty.
