On "What Will Future Anthropologists Deduce from Firewall Logs?"

Now, apparently on a semi-humorous note, Dave Piscitello writes this fun blog post "What Will Future Anthropologists Deduce from Firewall Logs?"

Here is how it starts: "Imagine that several centuries hence, anthropologists uncover a hoard of archived tapes containing terabytes of firewall log files recording events from the last decade of the 20th century and into our present day (2006). Now imagine that they discover how to read the media and open the log files."

Read on for laughs, but not only for those. There is enough sad truth in the conclusion ...
