The deep web is exactly what it sounds like: the underground internet, the portion that’s not indexed by traditional search engines like Google or Bing—and it’s much bigger than you might realize. In fact, major sites like Facebook, Wikipedia, and everything else you find through a search engine make up less than 1 percent of the internet.
The most secretive section in the deep web is known as the dark net, and you’ll need to download Tor to access it (here’s more on that process). Many people search the deep web to find drugs, illegal porn, or stolen credit cards. But deep web search engines also provide a lot of educational archives, hidden articles from academic journals, and intel on news around the world.

This blog reports on a paradox in US public policy: although the nation has first-world status in science/technology, its leadership is mathematically-illiterate and/or corrupt. This paradox is most evident in the transportation sector — and especially mega-projects. Common themes in these postings include: non-invented-here syndrome, risk perception, and industry best-practices.
