[ale] GA SB315 Lobby Day TOMORROW at the State Capitol



And NPR this morning.
Pretty much anytime GA makes NPR, it's embarrassing.
Lawmakers who can barely spell "windows" get to make decisions about
computer security and actively ignore the experts in the field.
The headlines need to be "Lawmakers in GA help Russia overrun elections
by banning computer security research"

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
