...a cyber version of 9-11 will inevitably do to the digital world (primarily Internet). Predicts Lawerence Lessig, anyway, who is familiar with what's in play and is certainly no fool.

I wonder what the Net will look like after the Digital branch of Homeland Security gets done with it? Laughing

If the Government gets their hands on the internet to a certain extent, I'm sure this site will be banned sooner or later.

I note that Egypt managed to close down internal communications, net and cellphones at the flick of a switch.

BTW, this is a GB blog/forum I frequent:
http://www.oldholborn.net/


And this blog/forum is the one most read by british politicians:
http://order-order.com/

If you check the comments you'll find the openness refreshing...

We can't even come close to securing our government networks yet let alone police the rest of it. Laughing
