A famous entrepreneur Guy Kawasaki once said that the only two reasons to start a business is to 1) right a wrong, or 2) prevent the end of something good. Only then, would we have the passion and clarity to endure the constant setbacks and rejections. Casey Mullis did a wonderful presentation today talking about cyber investigation and law enforcement. He asked a simple question: How far would you go to prove someone's innocence or to prosecute a known criminal (especially a child pornographer or child molester)? The answer is simple, "You never give up. You dig and dig until the Facts meet the Truth!" Computer forensics is much more than a technical challenge. We can't afford bystanders when our children's future is at stake.
"You can do anything if you put your mind to it." True for a 15-year old immigrant boy who didn't speak English but ended up being an university professor and a successful entrepreneur. That's the American dream. Unfortunately it is also true for a bunch of religious fanatics who hijacked civilian transports and turned them into flying molotov cocktails. That's the American nightmare. It wouldn't take much to start cyber terrorism. Similarly, as parents, our worse nightmare is when we say goodnight to our kids and they go into their private bedrooms and turn on their computers. +Tim O'Neill did a fantastic job today giving us an overview of cyber crime. You can run. You can hide. But what you don't know can and will hurt you.
