Om Malik wonders if people are seeing Gmail outages. Yes is the answer.
People have no idea how insecure browser based apps currently are. Read this XSS / CSRF FAQ to start. I predict 2007 will see a massive increase in XSS security problems and awareness.
Simple rule in the meantime: Don't store anything really important on the internet. Seriously.
Update: I feel a little silly about that last piece of advice, since the internet is so intrinsic to business these days.
