Oh boy... one more time with more probably in the wings...

There's something to be said for typewriter's, paper, and old style mainframes with dedicated terminals and dedicated networks.

Which, I guess, is something I don't really comprehend... why give everyone in every office, government or private, internet access? That is just begging from problems, from wasting time to a large attack surface.

The time-wasting is something that probably can't be controlled. Before computers there was the water-cooler, after computers but before internet access was common there was Solitare.
