The report which is available as a 3.5MB pdf which places Australia in second place, behind America, but ahead of China in cyber capabilities.

The report is written by  Tobias Feakin, Jess Woodall and Klée Aiken and published through Australian Strategic Policy Institute, or the ASPI.

It reads more like a score card, the same criteria is marked off against each country in a tabulated format. This then gives a ranking from highest to lowest.

Throughout the criteria the most common flaw seems to be out dated or poorly maintained infrastructure which is impeding the internet access to a population.

Some countries receive high praise for scoring in the eighty percents as others are relegated to “poor” and “disconnected”.

What the report fails to highlight is the difference between internet subscriptions and mobile phones connected to the internet, or is this a statistical trick, often used to make things seem more than what they really are…?

For example does an internet connection mean a ‘hand held‘ device or ‘internet subscription‘ which could include numerous devices. or are they deemed the same? For example Australia has 12.4 million internet subscriptions at the end of June 2013, and 19.6 million Australians have mobile phones connected to the internet. 

Singapore has high internet connectivity: about 74.2% of its population uses the internet, with 123.3 mobile-broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants.

It is interesting to note that some of the major sponsors that ASPI want us to know about at least, are not quiet the sort of companies you would expect to find in an Australian Strategic Policy Institute Report. Serco, Boeing and IBM…?

 

The ABC Lateline called it “A landmark report released tonight..” possibly ignorant to the major sponsor tab on the web site, or perhaps just the web site itself…but why the complete lack of  reporting on this fact in the ABC Report is a mystery. The other interesting aspect to this report  is the “overall digital strength”. How is that calibrated? Is it perhaps the population of a city divided by the number of internet connections and multiplied by the mega bit download or some other arbitrary formula intended to bamboozle and confuse?

 

The Bottom line of this auspicious report …we’re better than China…so everything is okay.

This is the statement from Stanley Cohen, a person with great moral fortitude, a man who stands by his beliefs and not his baggage, a good guy.

China – Kunming knife attack

In Archive, China, China, Economy, Environment, Internet, INTERPOL, leaksource, twitter, World Revolution on March 1, 2014 at 7:39 PM

More than 10 knife-wielding attackers slashed people at a train station in southwestern China in what authorities called a terrorist attack, and police fatally shot five of the assailants, leaving 29 people dead and 130 injured.
Kunming is the capital and largest city of the Yunnan province in Southwest China.

State media blamed the killings at Kunming in Yunnan province, south-west China, on militants from Xinjiang in the country’s restive north-west. “Evidence at the crime scene showed that the Kunming railway station terrorist attack was carried out by Xinjiang separatist forces,” the Xinhua news agency said, quoting officials in the city.

UPDATE 2 March 2014
It is understood that the attackers were Xinjiang separatists movement and that Kunming was targeted as the National Peoples Conference is to be held there this month.
Police managed to kill four of the attackers and have vowed to arrest the rest.
It is the first time people from the north-western region have been accused of such a major and organised attack outside its borders, despite rising unrest there in recent years. Many of its Uighur ethnic group, who are Muslim and Turkic-speaking, chafe at Chinese policies and a smaller number want an independent state.

At least 100 people have died in outbreaks of violence in the region in the last year. Last month, police killed eight people they said had attacked patrol cars in Xinjiang. In 2009, almost 200 died in vicious ethnic riots in its capital, Ürümqi.

A commentary on the English website of the state newspaper Global Times described the attack as “China’s 9/11″, saying: “The latest attacks in Beijing and Kunming have clearly indicated a despicable trend that separatists are targeting civilians out of Xinjiang.

Kunming will be hosting the National Peoples Conference and could be seen as a reason why the attack was carried out.
