You Might be Cyber Retarded

/* With a hat tip to Jeff Foxworthy */

If you think the big bad military is a recent intrusion into cyberspace, which should only be used for things that are right and good, and is powered by the rose-scented flatulence of unicorns . . .

If you think Stuxnet is the first time a digital “pandora’s box” has been opened because digital technology is a multi-edged sword with a high potential for blowback . . .

If, despite the Cuckoo’s Egg, Ellery Systems, Nortel, Lockheed Martin, E.O. 13010, the PCCIP report, National Plan for Information Systems Protection, the National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace, the National Infrastructure Protection Plan and the CNCI, you’re still telling people to worry about a “digital Pearl Harbor” . . .

If you make fun of people who employ a Maginot Line-type defense of their IT enterprise and don’t know what the actual Maginot Line was designed to do . . .

If you think domestic and international politics-as-usual and the shoe-horning of nuclear arms race analogs into information-age problems is going to help “secure” cyberspace . . .

. . . you might be cyber retarded.
