Our friend Noah Shachtman, who ran’s Defense Tech for several years, has left for a new job with WIRED as the editor of “Danger Room.” Here’s one of the stories on the new site: Tony Tether “Tony Tether has headed up the Pentagon’s way-out research arm, Darpa, since 2001. That makes him the longest-serving director in the agency’s nearly 50-year history. He sat down with me for an interview in his office, on the top floor of a blandly menacing Northern Virginia office building, last December. For my story in the March issue of Wired (online next Tuesday), Tether and I talked about everything from bio-terrorists to zombie rodents to thinking machines to the golf courses in Iraq. Here’s the transcript…” If you’ve ever wanted to meet the director behind all of those DARPA stories DID runs… here’s your chance.
