[Dailydave] Deep Half.

So there's a concept in BJJ/Judo called "base", and it's all about
knowing the center of gravity of your opponent and also knowing where
they're support structures are, and which direction they can flex and
push. I know almost nothing about such things (as evidenced by my
performance at INFILTRATE's BJJ Open Mat last year), but one thing that
does resonate is the weirdness of the "deep half
<http://thejiujitsulab.wordpress.com/2011/07/24/deep-half-guard-part-i/>" position.
An outside observer would say "why are you crawling under that guy so he
can sit on your face?"

Generally what happens is that you have your legs wrapped around his
legs and your head under his "frame" (euphemistically)  and you have the
option of trying to roll out behind him or find a few ways to throw him
and end up on top.

To put it into terms even I can understand: Being directly under someone
means you control their base because their center of gravity is directly
on top of you, and you are controlling their support structures, which
sucks for them.

This is where cyberwar is now. As much as it seems all the focus on
cyberwar in the legislative branch is going to get exploits regulated,
crypto stomped on, reverse engineering penalized, copyright infringement
penalties increased, etc. it's clear that governments have realized that
with tiny movements of cyber, massive changes in society's balance can
occur, and there's not a lot they can do about it. This is a good thing
for people on this list.

One thing government people CAN do is attend INFILTRATE
<http://www.infiltratecon.com/>this May. It's budget season and we've
already got one really exciting talk lined up on advanced
post-exploitation and covert channels. You should call now to reserve
your spot before all of DC shuts down due to a lack of trash collection. :>
