"Governments and organizations today must be well-equipped to manage the information flows and information systems that are vital to protecting their national security, or defending their bottom line. Simultaneously, state and non-state actors around the globe face a similar major challenge: harnessing the evolution of new, pervasive and powerful information and communication technologies. Recent unrest in the Arab world, facilitated by these same trends, has underscored the need for governments to incorporate holistic approaches to governance in an age of social media". - Dan Gabriel, CEO from Applied Memetics, Former CIA
