  • Daniel Drezner unloads on Jennifer Rubin. Bottom line: better hacks, please!
  • Thomas Rid argues against much of our current discourse on cyberwar. 
  • Lincoln Mitchell writes that: “Georgia’s government has lost its identity as one led by bright-eyed democrats seeking to build a European style democracy deep in the heart of what used to be the Soviet Union. Instead, the government of President Mikheil Saakashvili has become another semi-authoritarian regime relying upon selectively enforced and crafted laws, media repression and harassment and intimidation of political opponents in order to hold on to power.”
  • Gabriel Alejandro Torres Colón reports on fieldwork from a midwestern boxing gym.
  • Kindred Winecoff: “It’s Not Just the Data; It’s Also the Model.”
