Nice article in NY Times.
A beautiful example of "I told you so..."


“Proprietary software is an unsafe building material,” Mr. Moglen had said. “You can’t inspect it.”
“Intelligent public policy, as we all have learned since the early 20th century, is to require elevators to be inspectable, and to require manufacturers of elevators to build them so they can be inspected,”



There's another thread on GZ re the VW scandal, but as the article covers much more ground, I thought it was worthy of a new thread.

Code access is desirable, but the real problem with the current regime is inadequate testing.

I'm going to guess - that this one is so bad even the output from the vehicle's own sensors would easily demonstrate a serious issue present.
