The communication and information revolution, which morphed into the digital age, has driven a great deal of our Media/IP practice - cable TV, satellite, telecom, digital music, web sites, IP and even digital rights ( NY Times case in Su. Ct). Many of us in the practice have spent a fair amount of time thinking about the digital revolution, trying to anticipate the "next big thing " so that we could capitalize on it. I think it is fair to say, however, that despite our familiarity with the digital world, few, if any, of us thought about the parallel events taking place in the military. For example, we only need 250,000 troops to invade Iraq this time rather then the 500,000 last time. The reason: digitalization. If you are into that sort of thing ( I'm not), this is a huge productivity increase - we can kill the same amount of people with half the troops. Col. Walter Givhan, military fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations (a client), discusses the impact of the digital revolution on the military and his estimate of the incredible increase in our military capacity since 1991. James Goodale, former vice chairman of The New York Times, hosts. 3/5/2003
