Many people still don't make backups. Even most of my friends don't, and most of them are quite tech-savvy or even hardened by experience. When one of my friend's hard drive crashes I always laugh at them and say: "Backups are for whimps, no?" That seems to be the only way to make them take backups seriously.

That's what I thought too. And the conclusion of the article is 'We don't know the shape of the universe because we can't see far enough.' So the title of this is wrong too.
And they forget that back in 1200 communities were small and EVERYBODY around you knew all about you.
