#1 ...or a major misdirect for Chinese and Soviet Russian intel gathering. Technological Honey Pot, something they can't resist. Seed it with expensive technological dead ends.

#2 Yup. It reminds me of The Cookoo's Egg by Cliff Stoll. Which is a fairly dramatic story (with a highly unlikely protagonist) of international computer espionage from the early days of the internet.

#3 I gave that book to Mr. Wife for Christmas — he enjoyed it.

I’ve also posted Mr. Stoll’s Ted Talk here on more than one occasion, but y’all can find that easily enough if you want to see him bounce around the stage again in excitement about the thoughts he is sharing. Ditto if you just decided that now is the time to acquire one of his adorable Klein bottles, available from his on-line website. ;-)
