This story relates the views of internet security expert Bruce Schneier, "who fears lives will be lost in a cyber disaster unless governments act swiftly." Even if I thought this would be a good idea (and I don't, really) I wonder how it could be implemented. Will everyone in the world simply agree to put down their digitl development tools? Probably not. And in any case, things aren't secure now - our best hope for security is more development. Still, it's a catchy headline that people will like. And I love the photo. Love it!
