POLITICAL ESSAYS
The Unbelievable Superpower - Part 3
`
`
April 11, 2005
Associated Press [1]
Center Tries to Keep Computer Data
Safe
`
"Experts from...colleges will lead
a far-reaching effort to keep the
nation's computer data safe from
cyberattack...."
`
AP quotes the director of this
TRUST center:
`
"The idea is to look at ways to
build more secure systems before
a disaster along the lines of an
'electronic Pearl Harbor.'"
`
But the electronic Pearl Harbor
occured two days after he spoke.

April 13, 2005
Associated Press [2]
Music Group to Sue Students Over
Downloads
`
"Internet2 is used by...[millions
of] university students, research-
ers and professionals around the
world but is generally inaccessi-
ble to the public."
`
AP reports Internet2 is "super-
fast": its "researchers...can
download a DVD-quality copy of
the popular movie 'The Matrix'
in 30 seconds...."
`
That's background. Moving on.
`
"The Recording Industry Associa-
tion of America...said it will
file federal lawsuits...against
405 students at 18 colleges with
access to the Internet2 network."
`
The Motion Picture Association
of American also plans to get
into the act.

More and more Internet2 students,
already up to their necks in debt
to pay for their schooling, will
be hit financially. Severely so!
`
These are the folks TRUST will de-
pend upon to do the grunt research
"to keep the nation's computer data
safe...."
`
`
Like AP quotes the TRUST director:
`
"If one thinks about the possibil-
ities, they're really
`
QUITE FRIGHTENING."

I capitalized the words "quite frightening."
