Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

For those of you on LinkedIn (and those that are not) and that haven't heard of this, there is a group I would highly recommend joining:

CWFI - Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

There are many great discussions that take place within that group, many projects in the works and a lot of interest being generated all over the place. There is a website, cwfi.us, though still in development but is expected to be launched soon. I would expect that many discussions will be migrated over to the site once ready but I'm sure they'll continue on LinkedIn as well.

There are a lot of opportunities to help out if you feel inclined as well. They'll usually make a post in the discussions asking for volunteers or you can just speak-up and say you want to help :P

Anyway, just wanted to pass that along as I figured it might be of interest to many people here and I think they'll continue to expand and become pretty important.

Disclaimer: Yes, I joined. Yes, I participate/volunteer. And yes, it's a great group of people :)

Re: Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

Thanks, just requested to join.  Perhaps we could get an EH.NET LinkedIn group going as well?

Re: Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

Guess we could leave that up to Don, but not a bad idea. There is a ChicagoCon group - probably including many of the same people.

Speaking of which... Don, if/when you read this, what's up with ChicagoCon 2009f? Waiting? Skipping?

Re: Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

Hey cool. Hadn't seen that group out there. I think that would be an interesting sub forum here as well.

Heh, it is a good group Bill.  Shit, thta reminds me.. I am behind on an article they asked me to write on hardware coming from other countries with built in trojans being used as a popular vector for warfare.  You know like the Seagate drive incidents, and various picture frames etc.

Re: Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

And why is that not going to EH-Net?

BTW - I just added a Cyber Warfare Board:

Cool :) Will be looking forward to that one. I'm also real interested to see what the group that's researching that Chinese OS (Kylin?) comes up with too.

And why is that not going to EH-Net?


Haha, totally :) I'm sure CWFI wouldn't mind it being posted/syndicated here. I'm sure something can be worked out between EH-Net and CWFI (if Don hasn't already contacted Paul) ... plus, if it helps, I know the lead webmasters over there.. :D

Sweet, a new board! Thanks, Don!

Re: Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

I thought it was bad when I got a membership here. Then I got approved via LinkedIn to CWFI, and I thought i twas even worse.

Now I'm convinced I'm out of my field and in way over my head.

I've missed this feeling. So much to learn.

Thanks Bill and Don.

Oh and any word on an EH-Group over on LI?

Re: Cyber Warfare Forum Initiative

Maybe I should create a LinkedIn accoutn as well. Some available groups definitely sounds interesting, including this one.

Thanks for the new board, Don, much appreciated. Good to see how fast you are reacting. ;)
