    Sucks to be a Georgian right now, too.

    China is so worried about their country’s reputation that they feel the need to attack the press?

    Lame.

    Talk about politically insecure.

    “Information Warfare.

    Both military and civilian sectors in China are actively exploring the information warfare (IW) concept, which could be gradually developed into a corps of “network warriors” able to defend China’s telecommunications, command, and information networks, while uncovering vulnerabilities in foreign networks.” [sinodefence.com]

    It’s gonna be interesting times when they start tangling with the Americans.

    “start” tangling? China has four times the population as the US. Four times the bright and talented. Add another multiplier for motivation. Add another for no rules, laws, restrictions or regulation. Another for arrogance on the American part. “Start”? The battle has long been joined.

    I wrote about this in a fairly extensive manner in March 2008. This might be good reading for the BoingBoing audience.

    I have recieved this email before.

    I am an ESL teacher, and have worked in China and Thailand. The last time I was in China, I posted up ads around different asian teaching sites advertising I was looking for a new job, when that email popped up in my inbox. That would have been….oh….March-ish of 2005.
