re: Simple Security Is A Better Bet
Your analogy is flawed. Its more like "Well, he really should have this <insert complexity=""> and that <insert complexity=""> to be 99% cured, but since this guy is performing the procedure himself and dosnt have the expertise/time/resources to get to 99%, he can perform a simpler procedure that will get him to 90% NOW and will be able to get the other 9% down the road.</insert></insert>

So you go to the hospital and you overhear the physicians saying, "Well, he really needs this <insert complexity=""> and that <insert complexity="">, but since this guy doesn't know the difference, let's go with something simple instead.

Speaking of simple, the Schneier link has been moved.</insert></insert>
