10011001 wants you!

So the Air Force Cyberspace Command is stealing a page from our playbook, not that it was a particularly original idea to begin with (they were probably equally inspired by a young Angelina Jolie or more likely a grizzled Bruce Willis). But the issue feeds into larger concerns with the US’s science deficit:

First, U.S. companies face a severe shortfall of scientists and engineers with expertise to develop the next generation of breakthroughs. Second, we don’t invest enough as a nation in the basic research needed to drive long-term innovation.

The problem is that the ‘Air Force warrior’ mentality seems fundamentally at odds with the networked, social nature of informational security.
