The Psychology of Risks

This is an article in "Communications of the ACM" magazine - January 2008 Volume 51, Number 1.

I just quote.

"The big difference seems to be this: In their personal lives, people tend to consciously and deliberately take risks - though often unaware of possibly serious consequences. When dealing with computer technology, people tend to take risks unconsciously and in some cases unwillingly."
