Biden + Obama

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

Personally, I find the pick interesting because he has issues staying on message and can easily get himself in trouble with words, but it does provide balance to Obama who is well polished in his speaking and manners.  Also, our current president isn’t exactly known for being a perfect orator.  We’ll see if the Romney prediction is correct in the future.

cybercrime not prosecuted

Thursday, August 14th, 2008

Not shocking for those of us in the industry, but cybercrime (aside from trying to arrange underage sex and child pornography cases) get very little attention.  There’s a report that was done by a few places, the report article is here with the Full PDF available for your perusal. Interesting to think about laws put on the books, but the lack of resources made available to prosecute new laws. Perhaps something like PayGo when it comes to these types of investigations. The assymetrical battle rages on. The internet brought you more than low-cost communications with family and friends, the cost is lower for the bad guys as well.
