An online newspaper called the
American Reporter
has just published a summary I wrote of changes in computing and
Internet policy springing from the September 11 attacks.


Topics include the failed GOVNET initiative, the atmosphere in
businesses, activities taken by the government to promote better
computer security, the prominence of software bugs, the resurgence of
surveillance in the U.S. and Europe, data retention laws, issues of
802.11 wireless networks, and chilling effects on the adoption of new
technologies.
