And this dawning generation of browsers isn't running your momma's JavaScript. Here a graph on SunSpider performance benchmarks which looks at benchmarks world JavaScript scenarios like walking a graph, crypto, string ops, etc.

Don't miss this short animation which provides a clear view of job growth and contraction across the USA in the past few years. You can mouse over the regions for job loss numbers. I don't know about Munich, but Atlanta has certainly been hit hard. The job losses here meet or exceed that of much larger cities. I didn't realize it was that bad here.

The Katrina Bloom is wild!

Notice the constant red in Detroit... sigh...

Detroit is the canary in the coalmine.

Detroit is only a canary if its trends lead the national average. This is not the case for job loss.

Is the Hacking Threat To National Security Overblown? | Threat Level |
Topic: Miscellaneous 2:35 pm EDT, Jun  3, 2009

“Is hacking a national security threat?,” Yoran said. “The one word answer is yes.”

As proof, Yoran pointed to stories about the denial-of-service attacks in Estonia, attacks on government contractor Booz Allen Hamilton and the recently reported breach of a defense contractor that let hackers get at information on the Joint Strike Fighter.

“Cyber 9-11 has happened over the last ten years, but it’s happened slowly so we don’t see it,” Yoran said.

I'm going to beat the shit out of the next person who uses the phrase "Digital Pearl Harbor" or "Cyber 9-11" with a god damn PIPE.
