A digital Geneva Convention…

… you read it hear first! 🙂

This was written a few months ago:

Now, it is in the news:

Let’s see if this can get done.   Anyone know of other earlier attempts at bringing up this issue? (Yep and Yep!); ah, “There is nothing new under the sun…”   I wonder why this is coming up again.    Of course, protect yourself first seems to be apparent, from this article:

“No targeting of tech companies, private sector, or critical infrastructure.”

This might seem a bit difficult to parse.   After all, companies build weaponry for countries, and those might be considered legitimate targets (ball bearing plants in Schweinfurt, for example in WW2).   And critical infrastructure, such as electric power plants were and are targets during wartime.
