Internet Voting? Relax, Says Pew
The big story today in technology was the release of a survey by the Pew Internet and American Life Project. Among many interesting tidbits in the report: two-thirds of 1,286 experts believe there will be at least one devastating attack on the "networked information infrastructure or the country's power grid." The study also predicted good and bad news about the Internet's future impact on distance learning (good), government and corporate surveillance (bad), telecommuting (good), and online voting (no worries, for now, because "only 32% agreed with a prediction that online voting would be secure and widespread by 2014").
