If you have any interest in cyber security, and you should have an interest, this Washington Post column about a book written by the New York Times cybersecurity reporter Nicole Perloth that came out today on the "Cyberweapons Arms race" is scary well worth reading if you don't have time to read the actual book. Truth really is stranger than fiction.

So maybe T.S. Eliot was right:

“This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.”

The article conjures up a couple of questions:

1. Free press and free-flowing information notwithstanding, how much/what DOESN"T the author know, i.e. how much of her discourse is based on disinformation, and lack of information?

2. I f there were free press and and the same proliferation of info in our adversary countries as there is here, what would we learn?
