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.

strategy or fumble?

The confusing message of the white house in the past few months 'making the case' for war on Iraq. Was it the plan all along to create a perception of unilateralism so that then mild multilateralism would seem acceptable to the international community? A summary from Salon.

p2p worm spreading in servers

News.com reports threat levels rising associated with a new kind of Linux/Apache server worm that creates a P2P network to perform flooding attacks. (Here is a Symantec security advisory). I wonder when we will hit on an appropriate software development process and architecture that will be resilient enough to provide adequate security in the highly interconnected systems we're dealing with today.

the lessons of 9/11

Dave is right. 9/11 was horrible. But everywhere in the world, 9/11 is being replayed all the time, everyday... without CNN watching.
