The Ultimate Fighting Anarchist

He is, without a doubt, the toughest subscriber to In These Times. Standing 5’ 9? tall, weighing 240 pounds and sporting a shaved head, Jeff “The Snowman? Monson looks like a cartoon ready to pop, a compressed giant of crazy shoulders, massive biceps and meaty forearms.

Networking: Content filtering grows

Stupid corporations, with yet another excuse to buy more software that nobody really needs.
CHICAGO, April 24 (UPI) -- A gullible young employee sends out a confidential document -- over the Internet -- that should have been sent only by overnight courier. A spy, hired by a rival firm, snags the file, with a packet-sniffing device, as it transitions from the corporate network to the Internet. Trade secrets are divulged, and the company is ruined. Experts tell United Press International's Networking column that corporations, both large and small, are seeking to stop "information leaks," like that, with outbound content filtering software.

"When critical data escapes, either intentionally, or accidentally, organizations face financial, legal and reputational costs," a spokesman for Fidelis Security Systems, based in Bethesda, Md., told Networking. "As a consequence, the outbound content filtering market is experiencing exponential growth." By Gene Koprowski

Decay

The latest offering from the Bush administration is a nuclear attack on Iran; after only a few years in power this insane administration is ready to wage nuclear warfare! If this is not cause for alarm then resign yourselves to your fate (lemmings).

The Web: WTO's gambling deadline missed

Republican hypocrites try to take away online gambling.
CHICAGO, April 19 (UPI) -- A deadline imposed by The World Trade Organization for the Bush administration to clarify its stance on online gambling passed earlier this month, without a public response from the government, gaming experts are telling United Press International's The Web column. "We haven't seen anything from them yet," Peter Marcus, a spokesman for online gaming company, Intercasino, told The Web in an interview from London Tuesday. "We're not really expecting anything either. This is an election year in the U.S. The world has to appreciate it."

The April 3 deadline came from a case the WTO trade court decided against the United States and in favor of the tiny Island of Antigua. Last April the WTO, based in Geneva, ruled that the U.S. government was violating international trade agreements by prohibiting U.S. banks and Internet service providers from dealing with offshore, cyber-gambling casinos.

Doctrinaire Ideologues: Relics of the Past

It is the overwhelming masses of China that will assert their primacy against minority government and then spill across borders into surrounding regions. Existing maps of Asia and Europe will become redundant overnight. People across the globe will be spurred into action as they drag their corrupt leaders from their lairs to face the quick judgement of the people. The bunkers deep in mountains, designed to harbour criminal elites in times of devastation, have only a finite supply of resources before the inhabitants must emerge to face the final judgement of the people; justice is patient.

Networking: Human error largely to blame

CHICAGO, April 17 (UPI) -- What's the most grave IT security threat today? Hackers? Overly complicated corporate networks? None of the above, experts are telling United Press International's Networking column. Good, old-fashioned human error -- not nefarious, new technologies or super-sophisticated computer geeks, holed up in a shack near the Caspian Sea by the Russian mafia -- are to blame for about 60 percent of IT security breaches.

A new survey, a copy of which was provided to Networking, by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), said human error is increasing as an IT problem. Last year, only 47 percent of security breaches were blamed on human error alone. By Gene Koprowski
