Submission + - Homeland Security: The Game (videogamesblogger.com)

Wowzer writes: "The US Department of Homeland Security is developing a video game titled Ground Truth. Think along the lines of other government-created games like America's Army or Full Spectrum Warrior. From the article: "The game has you playing as a first responder to a natural disaster or terrorist attack. Success in the game would be dependent not only on the quickness of your response, but also how you go about responding. Make poor choices and you can expect larger casualties and a lower score.""

Submission + - Broadband comparison between US and Japan (washingtonpost.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A Japanese correspondent talks about the difference between the the Japanese and American broadband systems. They talk about such Slashdot favorites as Net Neutrality, Govt. Supported monopolies, and how the complacency of investment of US broadband infrastructure is leaving us far behind and in a place where the US is probably not the place where much innovation will be done in the future due to the lack of speeds to the home. Pretty good article and sums up most of the points from a Slashdot perspective and even has a Vinton Cerf interview. What is not to love ;)
