Thanks for your feedback; given that malicious software is more of a problem for commodity computer systems these days than the mind or brain, I do not really feel qualified to make predictions about threats and defenses there. That said, certain malicious activities like social engineering can be combated with techniques like user education, and ESET’s ESETUSA channel on YouTube is a great resource for educational videos, as is the Securing Our eCity web site.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

I don't say this to diminish what the author has written hear, quite the contrary… In part, to emphasise, no one really knows but one things for sure, and you can count this as my prediction, "The next year will be one of the most (if not the most) interesting, thought provoking and cosmologically world citizenry engaging of all recorded time!"
