stop wifi! (says the DoD)

An article by John Markoff, writing in the New York Times:

The Defense Department, arguing that an increasingly popular form of wireless Internet access could interfere with military radar, is seeking new limits on the technology.
How unsurprising. What is surprising is that the article doesn't mention that maybe, just maybe, what the DoD and the intelligence agencies are more likely to be worried aboutis a whole new communications system that is developing outside of their control, bypassing servers, eventually with strong encryption they can't easily crack, and so making it difficult to monitor.
