Carelessness and Computers

A study done at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor looked at over 300 computer/network problems at 36 institutions. They found that 40% of the problems were caused by the careless actions of students or staff. As opposed to external factors like viruses, the problems resulted from "inadequate training to help computer users avoid trouble and insufficient policies to deal with problems that do arise." So keep up with training and policies! [from Chronicle of Higher Education - subscription required] [from Edupage]
