Techies Head To Washington DC

from the sign-us-up dept

It seems that suddenly technology companies of all kinds are figuring out ways that whatever solution they produce can suddenly be used in the fight against terrorism. Some of these seem like good ideas. Some of them just seem opportunistic. No matter what, it seems like the newly created Office of Homeland Security will be getting tons of proposals from tech companies. Update: The Washington Post is running a similar article about tech companies seeing a “market” in detection technology. The NY Post has an article about the possibility of setting up a kind of “National Guard” of IT professionals to deal with situations like this.
