stuxnet- you will know this name, sooner or later
stuxnet is a computer virus, probably created by some combo of NSA/CIA/Mossad, that shut down the iranian nuclear complex last year-
so far “yeah!” the problem of course is that it is the first “real” (as in causing of physical damage) virus- both russia and china, and now iran have significant “cyberwar” capabilities- so look for stuxnet II, hitting an ATM/powerplant/traffic control system near you!
all of this points to the fact that we need to have back ups to our data on the cloud, alternatives to cell phones/internet devices dependent on the internet, and remember as we use computers every day, they can be used against us. (did anyone learn anything from the cell phone/EMT outage last winter in silver?)
excellent typography by the way- looks largely done in AE using 3-d, and 3-d elements.
