Let’s all assume this is a fictitious story.
You are are a bright, successful fellow, in fact your brokerage account has treated you like a king, it’s now well into seven figures and growing. For some reason however you managed to click one of those SRSrocco videos featuring Tom Cloud on the very same day CNBC is telling you that many many very large web sites are down this morning. Sites like the Wall Street Journal, Twitter and Spotify.
You phone your financial guy and ask that uncomfortable question, “Hey, what if it’s the financial sites that get taken down next?” Won’t happen you are told, “uhhh, but what if it does?”.
