This article has an interesting slant on the recent hacking of Sony. I hadn't been interested in the hacking because it affected the movie business; something only marginally connected to reality in my opinion. But the author of this article proposes that the Sony hack is a sea change in perception at least of the power of corporations. I ask the question: will corporations begin to practice self censorship and even covertly modify their business plans and decisions out of fear of hackers?

Will hedging against hacking attacks add an appreciable amount to the cost of doing business?
