'Tweets and the Streets' analyses the culture of the new protest movements of the 21st century. From the Arab Spring to the 'indignados' protests in Spain and the Occupy movement, Paolo Gerbaudo examines the relationship between the rise of social media and the emergence of new forms of protest. Gerbaudo argues that activists' use of Twitter and Facebook does not fit with the image of a 'cyberspace' detached from physical reality. Instead, social media is used as part of a project of re-appropriation of public space, which involves the assembling of different groups around 'occupied' places such as Cairo’s Tahrir Square or New York’s Zuccotti Park. An exciting and invigorating journey through the new politics of dissent, Tweets and the Streets points both to the creative possibilities and to the risks of political evanescence which new media brings to the contemporary protest experience.

The issue of cyber-security has been wrongfully divided into many parts, each part addressed separately. The approach
to cyber-security needs to examine the function of all the issues working together as in the study of complex systems.
Discussion: There is currently no effective cyber-security paradigm. Crime, exploitation, and invasions of privacy are
increasing costing billions of dollars and have even started to bridge into the physical world with the destruction of
uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran by the Stuxnet virus. There are a multitude of cyber security issues, but the most
important topics address how to define malicious actions in cyberspace, the inadequacy of the international community
to address these actions, and how active a role the private sector should play in the overall cyber-security effort. There is
no groundbreaking technology that will solve this problem despite much work by government agencies and corporate
entities. In fact, this effort has compounded the problem of cyber-security being examined in its parts when it should be
looked at as a whole. This is a distributed problem that needs a distributed answer, a systems solution that works as in
any well engineered system.
Conclusion: The ideal answers for the individual issues of defining cyber-attack, applicability of current international law,
and the proper role of the private sector does not produce the best answer for an adequate cyber-security paradigm as a
whole. A system of solutions that produces an answer that is greater than their parts needs to be pursued.

The move on the part of the US military, which began in 1996, to Network-Centric Warfare (NCW), meant the combination of sensor grids, C&C grids, and precision targeting to increase speed to command, and represented a military offset. Along with networking comes exposure to cyber attacks, attacks that will be used in future wars.
