As Alec Ross, America's top digital diplomat when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, writes this week in The WorldPost, "the weaponization of code is the most significant development in warfare since the weaponization of fissile material."
Other battles are also shaping up to determine the contours of our digital future. Lu Wei, China's Internet czar, makes his case for sovereign rule over cyberspace. Amy Chang examines how the Chinese campaign for "Internet sovereignty" will rupture the World Wide Web. (continued)

Google, no matter how you spin it, your alleged willingness to help criminals and other bad actors is under scrutiny. And it will continue to be so until you change your behavior and live up to your promise to be a great company.
I believe the revolution has begun and we are ready for change and soon no one will be able to mislead us and we will take advantage fully of the voice we have on a regular basis. Not just in extreme times, so if you want to be a part of this revolution, look on your phone or computer.
Despite precautions, cyber attackers can often stay one step ahead of protection mechanisms. Sony, of course, had little in the way of cyber security protections, making it an easy soft target for hackers. But even better protected systems can be penetrated.
Maybe someone can figure out why the assemblage of "Code Breakers," as they're called, are mostly wearing blue? Otherwise, I'm wondering about all the beaming when it comes to the demographics, and the uniformity.
Baby, it's cold outside, but inside the holiday shopping frenzy is heating up. As you race to get your last-minute gift-buying done, here are 10 great options to consider for the tech-lover on your list:
It was only two weeks ago that I had the incredible fortune to personally ask the President of the United States to kick off the Hour of Code by trying it himself. I still can't believe it actually happened.
All good things must come to an end. And sadly, we're nearing the end of the golden age of organic reach. But there is saving grace. And that hope rests in social advertising.
I wasn't given the opportunities I deserved and I was often silenced when I wanted to take things to the next level. People treated me differently because I was a woman.
In early December, tens of millions of people around the globe, including here in Vietnam, will be coming together to learn basic programming skills in the Hour of Code, a global movement spanning over 180 countries.

Yes, it is that time of the year again when everyone starts to predict what SEO will look like in the coming year. Google's algorithm is constantly changing. There are public updates as well as refreshes and tweaks that occur on a regular basis.
Welcome to the latest generation of computer games. They don't so much help you escape reality as insert you back into it at a different angle.
The bottom line is that this has become a fiscal and free speech fiasco for Sony. It sends a terrible message to this country's enemies and it sends us down a slippery slope of self-censorship and silence. When Hollywood is asked to put up or shut up, it will shut up.
