Cyberwarfare near and far
You know... I got confused, but it's a different story. The past news was about lukeravenstahl.com not ravenstahl.com. But the former does seem to have been bought by someone and is being used in a less than positive way. Not sure how long that has been going on, but it has some new blog-like content starting in April. I just noticed it. Same question though, I wonder what someone paid for the domain if it isn't owned by the original 'domain speculator' any longer.
Which brings up another post from the past here, but also in news stories about how folks were battling over the Luke Ravenstahl Wikipedia entry. The Wiki entry on LR seems to have mostly settled down. I just noticed there is a Pat D. entry on Wikipedia. Unless I missed it I can't find an entry for Dok Harris, but there is a Wikipedia entry for Kevin A. already. Not so surprising, but it is fun to look at who generated the content. Lots of entry from one author who has no other contributions other than on that one page. Is that really is the only thing he or she has written? Probably does not rise to the level of sockpupetry per se, but if Wikipedia worked as intended and you could see everyone's full content it would be interesting. But there is a curious thing noted in the history. It appears the whole entry was deleted by one of those Wiki powers that be soon after it was created. My interpretation of the wiki comment is that it looks like the Acklin expert generated a page before he announced for mayor and the Wiki editor deleted it for lacking significance. Note the tag given including him among "American Activists". Well then.
Enough fun with trivialities. Cyberwarfare is becoming a big thing. The Air Force had a plan to create a new cyber-warfare command somewhere in the US, but put those plans on hold last fall and a newer scaled down version in Texas looks to be likely. With cyberwarfare in the news more and more, the larger plan might show up again . That post has a quote that the new command would need 2-4 thousand people working for it. Wonder where would be a good place for something like that? or maybe just some big part of it? Might be something to whisper in Obama's ear while he is here. But stay away from the guy with the briefcase standing nearby.
