Chris,

 

I think the interesting point in the NYTimes article was that, "Hey, you guys in private industry have had almost 20 years of the Internet now.  If you don't care enough about security to protect us, maybe we'll have to get into the act."

 

Leaving aside the fact that governement (on either side of the pond) might not be the most knowledgeable body to get involved in cybersecurity, I can't say I disagree.  If we expect government to protect us from predatory lendors and bankers, I guess we may need them to protect us from lax software vendors (and businesses) as well.
