Government

+ - Senate Bill: Gaining Emergency Control of Net

Submitted by
Jogar the Barbarian
Jogar the Barbarian writes "U.S. Senator Jay Rockefeller, a democrat from West Virginia, has (re)introduced the bill S.773 which would allow the president to "declare a cybersecurity emergency" relating to "non-governmental" computer networks and do what's necessary to respond to the threat. Other sections of the proposal include a federal certification program for "cybersecurity professionals". From the article: "Representatives of other large Internet and telecommunications companies expressed concerns about the bill..." Yeah, no kidding!"

Bringing computers into the home won't change either one, but may revitalize the corner saloon.
