Who protects us? "Basically no one. At most, a number of loose confederations of computer scientists and engineers who seek to devise better protocols and practices — unincorporated groups like the Internet Engineering Task Force and the North American Network Operators Group.

Wow, what a great scam! No wonder why he didn't want public funds for his campaign.
