The 800-lb Dragon’s APTitude

February 06, 2010 Added by:Bill Wildprett, CISSP, CISA

I’ve been following the news about the Google hacks and ‘Operation Aurora‘ as McAfee called it, for a while.  There’s a plethora of online articles about this and why China would do this, which the PRC government denies pro forma.  It’s about nationalistic young Chinese and about PRC government, economic and military strategic interests.

My Mind is Wave-ering on the Utility, Security and Privacy Aspects

October 14, 2009 Added by:Sudha Nagaraj

Like many other Wave-wannabes, I am also awaiting an invite from Google to try out their all-in-one communication solution Google Wave. But I have my trepidations: over making my private work public, over opening up for comment work that is still being worked out, over messing up “my thoughts” with a thousand other theories, over starting something with the full knowledge that it could...
