The government's role in Internet security

If you've got an eye on Internet security news, you've probably heard about the proposed Internet security legislation that would create a cabinet-level cybersecurity advisor for the U.S.

Byron Acohido of USA Today had an interesting write up of the legislation and the early reaction it has garnered in his blog, The Last Watchdog. Of course, I have a few early reactions myself, so take a look at the comments to get my full two cents.

Are you a wannabe entrepreneur?

There's been a lot of talk recently about today's shabby economy being the perfect environment to start a business, and even I've been chiming in. It sounds crazy, but if you've ever dreamed of becoming on entrepreneur, there's no better time than now.

Amidst all the chatter, I came across this article from USA TODAY by Steve Strauss. It's an old article, but the message remains the same.

As Strauss points out, unemployed and under-employed individuals have a tendency to become more entrepreneurial during recessionary times (along with lower costs for goods and services). And new businesses that begin during a recession create the jobs to help move the economy back on track.

Even more appealing in today's times is the power of the Internet. The Web is changing the game. It enables people to take their ideas and start new businesses more easily than ever before.

Why?

  • It offers powerful, versatile, and low-cost ways to connect people, companies, customers, prospects, and suppliers to one another in real time.
  • It allows for secure transactions to take place between the above groups.
  • You can sell products and services at low cost, without being limited by geography 24x7.
  • You can broadcast video (the most powerful medium to promote your service) without a TV studio or government licenses to any PC or video-equipped mobile phone. (Today there are 3.5 billion phones, and soon most will be able to display video.)
  • You can target and reach very specific audiences through search engine optimization, blogging, and other techniques at very low cost
Is that drool coming from your mouth? Then what are you waiting for? Get out there!
