From the Author
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.
