Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Any one who believes the UK's politicians are a boaring (sic) bunch of old hams that know little about the Net needs to think again. More than 100 MPs from both Houses have already joined a new all-party group that focuses on Net issues. The Associate Parliamentary Internet Group (APIG) hasn't been around that long but already it's one of the largest interest groups in the UK's seat of power. Not only does APIG provide a forum for politicians to learn more about the issues facing the Net industry and consumers, it also give the industry a chance to lobby the lawmakers. And it's got a top logo: a picture of a little porker with an @ sign for a tail. Cute, no? Chaired jointly by Derek Wyatt (Labour) and Michael Fabricant (Conservative) APIG could become a very influential body within the oak-lined corridors of power at Westminster. Unfortunately, APIG doesn't have a Web site yet but The Register has learnt from one source that a Web sty is on the way. No doubt it will contain lots of little applets. ®
