Much ado about nothing .... and you know it is so.
“I am inviting governments, international organisations, NGOs and businesses from across the world to a conference in London in November. We have a shared responsibility to address the challenges presented by the networked world including cyber crime that threatens individuals, companies, and governments. It is vital that cyberspace remains a safe and trusted environment in which to operate. This can only be done effectively through international cooperation, engaging both the public and private sectors. Together I hope that we can begin to build the broadest possible international consensus on how to realise the enormous economic and social benefits the Internet offers. It is crucial that we start a focused dialogue now”. .... William Hague
In cyberspace, there is no place to hide lies and deceit, which very effectively renders governments and their lackeys as impotent and frustrated spectators to all that is shared about governments and their lackeys who want to be leaders in the field, and players in virtual fields which do not suffer the folly of fools who provide conflict as a tool for resolution of difficulties they would be defeated in with simple logic and a valid changed perspective and alternate undeniable view on reality.
And quite what the conference will actually do, apart from expelling a lot of hot air, is exceedingly vague, Mr Hague, and will probably just result in calls for reports and agreements for future meets to further discuss the progress that will not have been made in the field. Is that what governments do especially well whenever all they are interested in is maintaining the stays quo to their personal advantage?
How about you start a New and QuITe SurReal Great Game, which will require definitely, that someone else start it with a Beta Command of Controlling IT ....... which is sort of what everyone thought the Office of CyberSecurity and the Cyber Security Operations Centres of GCHQ and the Cabinet Office were all about, but obviously aren't, which makes that £650,000,000 provided, a nice little earner for nothing peculiar ..... but you can be sure it is for someone in particular. And now a £1,000,000,000 honey pot is trailed and trialed to kickstart a dead donkey of an administrative executive in dire straits need of Colossal Cloud Thinking.
Does anyone have an email address to a direct source of intelligence capable of dealing with novel products and virtual projects for struggling moribund governments?
