Internet public health

Over on my Harvard blog, I’ve started a series of posts about my foray into the field of public health and how it relates to the malware world. If you’re interested, please read along and post your thoughts in the comments.

Deportees

Every time I listen to the Woody Guthrie song "Plane Wreck at Los Gatos," I think how sad it is that, nearly 50 years after he wrote it, the lyrics are still relevant.

Some of us are illegal, and some are not wanted,
Our work contract's out and we have to move on;
Six hundred miles to that Mexican border,
They chase us like outlaws, like rustlers, like thieves.

The Democratic Diamond of Unity

My friend Jon, author of Our Karl Rove, has a good post up about the fallout from the Democratic primary and what it means for supporters of both Obama and Clinton going into the general election.

The key take-away is to acknowledge that if you strongly support either candidate, you're experiencing planned animosity towards the opponent. The sooner Democrats step back and understand that this is planned and not personal (and "see the diamond"), the sooner the Democrats can coalesce around the presumptive Democratic nominee.
The "diamond" is a metaphor for the separation that occurs between candidates during the primary and the desired convergence on behalf of party unity that occurs as the general election nears.
