Netwar and Cyberwar

1 November 2001


This editorial essay, while it stands alone, follows upon one on a related topic ("Netwar") written for the inaugural issue of Interface. There we began to construct an argument that the events of September 11, and the very nature of the war against terrorism and the putative guilty parties, Mr. Isama Bin Laden and his organization, el Qaeda, can fruitfully be understood as yet another impact of the Internet. The entire phenomenon belongs, we believe, to a particular form of conflict known as "Netwar." Before discussing Netwar proper, we need to develop an understanding of several related concepts, also related to the development and impact of the Internet.
