Threat of Cyberterrorism…

Every generation lives with some looming fear. When I was a kid it was fear that the cold war with the Soviets would turn into WW3. In this first decade of the 21st century we now live in fear of another terrorist attack. NPR presented a story recently titled "Assessing The Threat of Cyberterrorism".

While this does need to be a concern that we should not ignore, we need to be careful that our response is measured equal to the threat. Once again, our government needs to learn to deal with these issues logically, without developing another layer of confusing, redundant rules that everyone has to conform too. Lets hope this does not become another misuse of the Patriot Act.
