Haystack was supposed to be a revolutionary tool in the cause of freedom. Billed as a sort of steganographic communications tool for censored Iranians, the software hurtled to popularity in the media. But last week, it seems to have fallen quickly out of favor. Code that was not made generally available was reviewed by Jacob Applebaum, who was frank in his assessment. Applebaum is well-positioned to offer an expert opinion here, as he works for the Tor Project, which has significant experience designing software to anonymize network traffic. In the wake of Haystack’s trouble, I’m reminded of how our fragile psychologies fall victim to trusting things that we should not.

Cisco’s “Welcome to the human network” brand campaign has been around since 2006. Today, we’ve launched an evolution to the brand with a new slogan, “Together we are the human network.” Although a subtle variation in wording, the message is impactful. If you think about how people around the world are looking for and moving toward more authentic human interactions, video plays a significant role in bringing these human connections together. To emphasize the importance of this cultural shift, Cisco is evolving its brand campaign to express a broader, more human vision of what the network can offer—a richer, deeper experience of being together.
