I’m still doing this from my phone so you’re not getting my usually long posts. But a post over on Bruce Schneier’s blog about “cyber warfare” had a rather interesting line in it:
Googling those names and terms — as well as “cyber Pearl Harbor,” “cyber Katrina,” and even “cyber Armageddon” — gives some idea how pervasive these memes are. Prefix “cyber” to something scary, and you end up with something really scary.
It’s true. For instance here is a list of good cyber threat terms that should be showing up anytime soon:
- cyber Alamo
- cyber World War II
- cyber ragnarok
- cyber apocalypse
- cyber zompocalypse
- cyber Vietnam policing action
- cyber end of the world
Yeah we can play the same game as the hype-mongers as well. Maybe the NSA should give me a job.
