We’re not going to war with North Korea

Not over a movie studio getting hacked.

“We didn’t go to war with North Korea when they murdered American soldiers  ​in the 1970s with axes. We didn’t go to war with ​North Korea when they fired missiles over our allies. We didn’t go to war with ​North Korea when one of their ships torpedoed an alliance partner and killed some of their sailors. You’re going to tell me we’re now going to go to war because a Sony exec described Angelina Jolie as a diva? It’s not happening.”

Probably not ever. 

Great article on what this incident is – is it terrorism? cyber-terrorism? Criminal? An act of war?

Whatever it is, we need to stop calling it “cyber” anything. That term is so outdated and just dumb sounding. It sounds like how an old Luddite would describe internet things.

Also, the other day I randomly stumbled upon why technophobes are called “Luddites.” It’s a fascinating story.
