Cyber Metaphors

For those who haven't heard yet, the latest issue of Defense AT&L is posted.

Yay!

In this Very Special Episode, I return to the topic of metaphors and the central role they play in human understanding and thought. The article is titled It's Not A Big Truck, and if you've ever asked yourself "What IS this 'internet' thing everyone is talking about?" then this article is for you. Also, if you ever use the internet.

Note: I wanted to point out that a metaphor is like a simile, but I couldn't work that line into the article. So you have to read it here instead. Hokay?
