Reviewed Brave New War, Robb, 2007. Discusses empirical methods of global network development and security. Had previously read the author in the book “WorldChanging”. This text discusses fundamental change in security that leads to decentralization of energy, communication & market systems, e.g. an internet of trade. Uses many networking analogies to illustrate a philosophy of resilience. Provides coverage of topics such as effects-based operations, cascades of failure, “systempunk” blitzkrieg definition, open-source warfare, & delves into phishing, swarming, & stigmergic systems. Warns again hindsite bias since risks may be immeasurable ahead of time. Good source of information for security consultants.
