Government to take stand against Worms
Encouragement is about all they can do. As far as I'm concerned, the internet is no single nation's government's domain to regulate, and any effort pushed in the United States will merely force the attacks to occur from elsewhere.
Looks like the US government is laying the foundation to claim ownership of the Internet, for the purpose of regulation and taxation and restricting usage in the future. Napster was just the beginning, then websites not allowing file transfers, next? Anyone care to make a guess?
The Internet has become indispensable to our national security and economic well-being

Well following the trend we'll probaly see text-based browsers again
If all else fails, we can go back to running BBSes. The Sysopt BBS, with excellent ASCII art work.
Surreal is correct, this is the opening they needed to force legislation to monitor the internet. After a 60 mile commute to and from Austin TX for a year I saw many slowdowns and stoppages going and coming. We now have cameras on the highways to "monitor the flow of traffic." Course you might get mailed a traffic ticket too! Will we let the "information superhighway" be next? I suppose that depends on the passiveness of the American people.
