The Code4Lib Journal – The Planets Testbed: Science for Digital ...
The preservation of digital objects requires specific software tools or services. These can be characterisation tools that abstract the essential characteristics of a digital object from a file, migration tools that convert digital objects to different formats, or emulation tools that render digital objects in their original context on a new infrastructure. Until recently digital preservation has been characterised by practices and processes that could best be described as more art and craft than science. The Planets Testbed provides a controlled environment where preservation tools can be tested and evaluated, and where ... market research, surveys and trends

ISSB Background Papers
On December 13, 1996, the law firm of Steptoe and Johnson, LLP, hosted a meeting for representatives of the National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC), private corporations, associations, and Federal government agencies to discuss the establishment of a private-industry led effort to further explore the formation of an Information Systems Security Board (ISSB). Mr. Bruce McConnell, Office of Management and Budget, informed the group that the Clinton administration supported the ISSB concept, particularly, the idea that the ISSB would be a private sector organization. Mr. McConnell noted that the both the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Safeguarding Information Operations — Central Intelligence Agency
The reality is that the vulnerability of the Department of Defense--and of the nation--to offensive information warfare attack is largely a self-created problem. Program by program, economic sector by economic sector, we have based critical functions on inadequately protected telecomputing services. In the aggregate, we have created a target-rich environment, and US industry has sold globally much of the generic technology that can be used to strike these targets. -- Report of the Defense Science Board Task Force on Information Warfare-Defense (IW-D), November 1996 Most articles about the US information superhighway have ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Mohawk Photographer Arrested at G20; Inhumane Imprisonment in Toronto
Mohawk photographer Ben Powless, 23, was among 900 arrested in mass by police in Toronto during the G20 demonstrations. Police attacked journalists, punching one reporter in the mouth and beating another, during peaceful demonstrations. Powless was jailed for more than 20 hours, then released without charges. He was arrested for "breach of the peace" (standing in a public street, with no provocation.) Inside the G20 Summit, the world's powerbrokers and elitists, including President Obama, wanted nothing less than to hear the voices of the world's poor and the defenders of the land. Powless provided photos of ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Lockheed's AML Adds Flexibility to C4ISR Sensor Development
