This story about the Stuxnet worm is amazing. Even though the article is somewhat conjectural in nature, it still leaves me feeling just a little bit mind-blown.
When I was little, I couldn’t wait for “the future” to arrive. Much of the credit for that goes to the Jetsons; my childhood vision of the future mostly involved flying cars. (Didn’t everybody’s?)
I never thought about what the future would mean for warfare and espionage. And I certainly never imagined that these things would be waged via computer.
