Regarding the internet and the big red button.

There has been recent talk about implementing a so called internet “kill switch” to be used by the P.O.T.U.S. in an emergency response situation. The idea is obviously not well received by the internet savvy community.

I came across Schneier’s blog entry on the topic of “cyber war” which caught my interest. I recently did a little looking into this new U.S Cyber Command department when it made the news as it related to the big red button issue. The lengths our government goes to in order to disguise it’s theft of our freedoms as our protection from harm is at this point typical but never any less maddening. Unless of course you think that just because they have an official seal and a commander they are the good guys.

Schneier’s blog entry led to the following debate; also very interesting.
