Why Archived Information Can Be Useful

January 11, 2020

There’s nothing like a ubiquitous service like email and systems for keeping copies of information. Online is interesting and often surprising. This thought struck DarkCyber while reading the Time Magazine article “‘This Airplane Is Designed by Clowns.’ Internal Boeing Messages Describe Efforts to Dodge FAA Scrutiny of MAX.” Here’s the passage of interest:
