A word on the devastating assault at Mumbai: at least five BlackBerry devices were seized which the terrorists were using during the fights. According to a recent Fraunhofer study, BlackBerrys provide a secure information architecture, no wonder they are popular among managers for easy and secure communication. The same communication technique, however, helped these terrorists in having sort of feedback on their atrocities, thus establishing an amplifying terror feedback loop. Not just since 9/11 terrorists of the world try to get maximum world-wide attention: it's also the feedback mechanism of action, horror, and perception that keeps the terror going. Cutting off the flow of information could hamper their strategy. I know that inhibiting information seems impossible in our networked world, but balking their plans of immediate fear spreading the world by not letting the world know for a while seems to me a better strategy than live battle reports. It's a war of alertness and if we pay immediate attention to terrorist acts they will continue with one bloody action after another. What do you think?
