Air, Space, and Cyberspace



In "Are Air Force ads recruiting or lobbying?," The Los Angeles Times looks at print and broadcast advertising campaigns for the Air Force in new "Above All" ads. Of course, I'm interested in the trio of terms that punctuates the end of the message: air, space, cyberspace and how this branch of the military seems to be appropriating a sphere of digital influence as well. Notice the much-lampooned "threat alert" system appearing in this ad.

Interesting ads. Since I am a Canuck I would have missed out on these if not for your posting about them so thanks! One could spend their entire online writing career writing about military informatics no? :)

Great content here! I've bookmarked this blog and look forward to exploring the archives. Thanks Liz. :)
