I am a Research Director at an IT industry analyst firm named Gartner. (See http://www.gartner.com/AnalystBiography?authorId=37064)
Eight months ago I studied the 2008 financial meltdown for a report I was writing for Gartner, and finally realized that none of the problems have been fixed. I know have a personal blog where I talk about these issues (see http://andthebandplayedon.blogspot.com/). I have become a huge fan of ZH.
