Cyberspace has evolved beyond the imagination of most in the last fifteen years to the point that science fiction has become more science than fiction.41 But it stands on a precarious foundation that could be shaken by a cyber 9/11 or cyber Pearl Harbor. Who has forgotten that after 9/11 the skies were emptied of aviation? Who has suffered through an extended blackout or loss of water? Who has contemplated the impact of a fuel shock on the global economy, especially as gas passes $4.00 per gallon? Cyberspace is as vital as those resources and intimately connected to them as well. For that reason I say again, welcome cyber-warriors; especially cyber-defenders. Our nation's future depends on you.
