terror and technology

From Ray Ozzie: Tyranny, Terror and Technology. Some good ideas (and links), but I think he is stretching the analogy of the US government as an "adaptive and resilient network form" a bit too far. The US has continually expanded its power, in big part, because of its large amount of natural resources and its geographical insulation from the world and in particular from "combustible" areas such as the Middle East. Analogies like these are always "slippery"... we tend to think that simply because there is an analogy between X and Y , if we understand X then we also understand Y, and that's not usually the case.
