I am busy now;
The Internet has stolen
So much precious time.
The problem with the Internet is that it is meant for communications among non-friends.
I don't like hype, but hype sells.
Double-click on someone, and you're instantly logged in as them.
Representative Greg Walden of Oregon, a vice chairman of the Republican Congressional committee:
It's a battle to the end.
Representative Chris Van Hollen of Maryland, the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee:
We're duking it out everywhere.
It's like the tea party movement's been hacked.
The first refuge of any politician in trouble is that it's a communication problem, not a policy problem. If only I explained what I was doing better, the people would be more supportive. Which roughly translates to If only you people paid attention, you wouldn't be kicking me upside the head.
The American people have a limited attention span. Once you convince them there's a problem, they want a solution.
Modern war is about metrics (and Powerpoint).
Simply because a problem is shown to exist doesn't necessarily follow that there is a solution.
It has become clear that Internet access in itself is a vulnerability that we cannot mitigate. We have tried incremental steps and they have proven insufficient.
