Starting a Model T Ford was never easy, especially in the cold. People learned early to NEVER wrap their thumb over the starter handle. Additionally. NO ONE would lock the elbow before turning the crank and starting the engine. Why?
A misfire would often throw the crank in the opposite direction. The violent backfire and counter revolution would break elbows and thumbs that weren't trained to expect it. In today's litigious world, I believe Henry Ford would have been sued out of business. Today's world is far less accommodating to risks and more likely to blame the innovator.
I also wonder about my own stances as an Information Security professional who is fast returning to basic Risk Management roots. Years ago, I amazed my more conservative friends with my occupation: Motorcycle Safety Instructor. Paradox: feather of lead, jumbo shrimp, and Motorcycle Safety.
Most Information Security professionals are risk averse. For any given design, they can point out hundreds of risks.
