Summary
"Software has become crucial to the very survival of civilization. But badly written, insecure software is hurting people - and costing businesses and individuals billions of dollars every year. This must change. In Geekonomics, David Rice shows how we can change it." "Rice reveals why the software industry is rewarded for carelessness, and how we can revamp the industry's incentives to get the reliability and security we desperately need and deserve. You'll discover why the software industry still has shockingly little accountability - and what we must do to fix that."--BOOK JACKET
