Editorial Reviews

Review

"THE ALEXANDRIA PROJECT is fiction that cuts close to the bone. But where George Orwell envisioned 1984 from the safety of thirty-five years out, the future that Updegrove describes may already be upon us. That's what makes it dangerous, and that's what makes THE ALEXANDRIA PROJECT an important as well as riveting read." - Dan Geer, CHIEF INFORMATION SECURITY OFFICER, In-Q-Tel

From the Author

What is The Alexandria Project  all about?  Most immediately, I hope you find it to be a great read, with interesting, colorful characters, a fast-paced plot that captures and holds your interest, the requisite number of clever plot twists that you'd expect in a good thriller, and an exciting surprise ending.  I hope you'll also enjoy the sense of ironic humor that runs through the entire book.  Finally, if you're technology savvy, I hope you'll appreciate the technical credibility of the plot.  But if you're not, no worries.  I've taken care to make the book just as readable to someone that can't tell a bit from a byte.

There's a second reality to The Alexandria Project, though, that's worth remembering when you've set the book aside.  Today, everything is controlled through the Internet.  And by "everything" I mean everything.  Communications.  The financial system.  Government.  Transportation.  The power grid.  The list has no end, and our reliance on the Internet increases every day. That would all be well and good if we were spending the same effort making the Internet secure as we are making it useful.  But we haven't, and we still aren't.  If the Internet were ever to be taken down, life as we know it would literally come to a halt.  

The good news is that what you read in The Alexandria Project  is fictional.  The bad news is that it's fictional only in the sense that it hasn't happened yet.

But here's some more good news:  if you want to follow the further adventures of Frank Adversego, drop by the ConsortiumInfo.org Standards Blog, where every Monday I post a new chapter of the sequel to The Alexandria Project, called The Lafayette Deception.  If you do, you may begin to wonder where there's more to those crazy election year poll numbers than meets the eye.
