In last night's State of the Union Address, President Obama called for
... well, a lot of things. It's the State of The Union, it covers a lot of ground. One item high on the agenda, though, was improving cybersecurity around the nation
. It was a timely concern, considering that Anonymous members were threatening to disrupt the online broadcast of the President's speech, a threat they failed to follow through on. Before he took the stage though, Obama had already signed an executive order in the hopes of strengthening America's infrastructure -- things like power grids and air traffic control systems -- against cyber attacks. While well meaning, though, the order is largely toothless.
Between a still flagging economy, gun violence that seems more and more out of control, and hostile foreign powers edging closer to becoming nuclear threats, President Obama has a lot of ground to cover in his State of the Union address later this evening
. But it's not like he's going to be the only important person on hand, and we're going to be on the lookout for a couple of celebrity guests in particular at tonight's State of the Union, including NASA's own Mohawk Guy.
