an "organizational attenuator".
Someone has to dampen energy that might elsewise get into the mechanisms that matter to the the alphas.
The colonization efforts will be just like Antarctica without air.
Without fuel in antartica there would be no water.
Let us consider that the schools in which you are talking about having this mandate is in our public school system (AKA Socialized School). Of course this mandate will never happen. It should, but it won't. I bet dollars to donunts our private schools already have made this mandate.
I can't help but think that we may be in a similar situation with health care if that becomes socialized.
How would you like having a claim turned down for a preventative gene test early in life that will be a precuror or something that helps your health success many many years from the date of the test.
It is a common understanding that the weakest link in information security is people. Until we are able to tell what people are thinking and protect ourselves from either their malice or ignorance it will be a problem.
Education of users is clearly a fundemental pillar in information security. I am sure social engineering schemes will continue to improve in their effectiveness in exploiting vulnerabilities.
Working againist this cause is that no one will be able to concretely say that an information security program created revenue (except of security product suppliers). The only real hook that keeps executives funding security is the criminal and civil exposure they deal with. Keeping the execs out of jail is worth funding.
I think this is pretty big news.
It seems just like when Virgin Atlanic airlines took advantage of complacent and poorly managed (at the top) Pan Am Airlines and cherry picted talent. Look who is around now. I think we may finally be seeing the shift in media from print to web for newspapers. It is a big ship and it takes time. Industries reinvent themselves, sometimes as other companies.
UNIX enhancements aren't.
