The Computer Made Me Do It

Not entirely on point to the committee, but I couldn't help but share the story from our local paper about the guy who got ticketed for making a left turn notwithstanding an extremely well-marked 'No Left Turn' sign (and barriers, etc.). (Scroll down a bit for the story.) His excuse? Mapquest said it was OK. My favorite line in the story? "So while digital technologies are making it easier to find your way around, there's something less newfangled that you should always bring along: Your brain."

Actually -- Not bad advice for much of what we do with our toys here in Cyberspace.
