BIO
Joy Garnett is a painter based in New York. She appropriates news images from the Internet and re-invents them as paintings. Her subject is the apocalyptic-sublime landscape, as well as the digital image itself as cultural artifact in an increasingly technologized world. Her image research has resulted in online documentation projects, most notably The Bomb Project.

Notable past exhibitions include her recent solo shows at Winkleman Gallery, New York and at the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC; group exhibitions organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art, P.S.1/MoMA Contemporary Art Center, Artists Space, White Columns (New York), Kettle's Yard, Cambridge (UK), and De Witte Zaal, Ghent (Belgium). She shows with aeroplastics contemporary, Brussels, Belgium.

cyber bloodfest fearmongering twinkies


[Muhahah!]

Soon al-Qaeda will kill you on the Internet
By Thomas C Greene in Washington
Posted: 28/06/2002 at 10:16 GMT
http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/6/25938.html

The Business Software Alliance (BSA), known for kicking doors with dogs
and brownshirts to sniff out expired licenses and for extorting vast sums
of cash from non-compliant victims even more frightened of a visit from
that federal Copyright-911 force also known as the FBI, has taken it upon
itself to cobble up a survey which, in the addled minds of the mainstream
press, indicates that al-Qaeda has obtained the weapons of mass, digital
destruction, and is poised to use them. Western Europe and North America
will be razed by a holy onslaught of SYN floods and VB worms and buffer
overflows. All Christendom will be laid waste.

Actually, if you bother to read the 'report', you'll find that the BSA
drivel does nothing more than record the fears of "IT pros" convinced that
this is an eventuality. It offers not one shred of evidence that plans are
in the works; not one hint of how this diabolical assault on your life and
you daughter's virginity might be accomplished; not one scrap of actual,
firsthand research.

Their entire FUD campaign is based solely on the perceptions, imaginations
and fears of unnamed "IT pros" -- more than 300 of them, we're assured.

And yet, CNN went so far as to declare a crushing al-Qaeda cyber
blood-fest inevitable. The Washington Post went one further, liberally
quoting the eternally alarmist Richard Clarke, Ron Dick and John Tritak,
and publishing a six-page FUD tome by staff twinkie Barton Gellman, who
lapped up every word. (He's a Pulitzer Prize winner, kids.)

"US analysts believe that by disabling or taking command of the floodgates
in a dam, for example, or of substations handling 300,000 volts of
electric power, an intruder could use virtual tools to destroy real-world
lives and property. They surmise, with limited evidence, that al-Qaeda
aims to employ those techniques in synchrony with 'kinetic weapons' such
as explosives," the pathetically credulous Gellman warns us.

So they're going to crash planes in flight in spite of the pilots on
board. They're going to poison food supplies by hacking into the Kellogs
mainframe and pumping toxic chemicals into your precious brat's cereal in
spite of the workers and inspectors on the production line. They're going
to open flood gates and drown your entire town, in spite of the scores of
monitors working there.

Remember, "IT pros" are frightened. You should be too.

So what the hell does the BSA have to gain from this exercise in fear
mongering? You tell me. Email me and I'll do a roundup of your more
interesting letters. My guess is that this is somehow meant to bolster MS'
announcement of Palladium, by which means the software colossus would
foist an impotent desktop appliance on us in place of our computers. The
argument here might be that once you've had your balls surgically removed
by Redmond and capitulated to its new, trusted network, the naughty
un-Christian buggers of the world will be stopped at the border. We'll be
singing soprano to Redmond's tune, but happily so and, most importantly in
this age of doubt and fear, safely so. The Chinky-Chinky Chinaman and the
Turbaned Chupacabra will be unable to strike us in our beds once
Trustworthy Computing takes root.
