Domestic Efforts at Governing Cyberspace

Many national governments have a set of laws governing cyberspace. The problem with these laws is that they are domestic and not-binding on other countries. Therefore, what is needed is an international law that harmonizes domestic laws, and sets up an international CERT.

This article is a case in point for why international negotiations have to take place in order to secure cyberspace.
It has been suggested that more cybersecurity laws here will help with computer security. Thompson and I agreed on a view about that. It's a waste of time to pass laws in the US that can't or won't be enforced in Russia or China.
Of course, there can be economic carrot and sticks associated with a country abiding by U.S. cyber-law. That is, if you obey the U.S. cyber-law then you will have access to advanced technology, if not, then you will be sanctioned. That is the black and white view at least.

No thots about the Heavenly Great Beyond? That's about to change. FOUR!! blogs which tell of the exxxcitement of A-L-L Heaven has to offer, which is an eternity of pleasure-beyond-measure: we ROTE {theeyebeam} to show a true story about sex in Heaven after we croak (apparently, most of U.S. are completely unaware of this fact). C'mon, people. The Liar's a deceiver: absolutely no sex in Hell amid the flames and filth, yet, puh-lenty of sex Upstairs for the length and breadth of eternity. God bless you. Meet me Upstairs.
