  •  There is a pretty serious cyberwar going on now (1+ / 0-)

    between the US and Iran. If it continues to escalate, you are going to see massive disruption of lots of things that you wouldn't ordinarily think of as being connected with the Internet, because of course pretty much everything is now. And that makes us horribly vulnerable. I read that Iran puts large sums of money into cyberwarfare, and apparently uses Hezbollah as a surrogate quite a bit.nso a lot of hacking comes from Lebanon these days, like the denial of service attacks against US banks a while ago. I would imagine that the Iranians are ramping up for the possibility of a strike on their nuclear program. If that happens, the dkos site might be down for a while.

    Voting is the means by which the public is distracted from the realities of power and its exercise.
