In response to Anders' comment of shields not keeping pace with spears,
there seems to be two ways this could change. One is anonymity as defense,
as in Vernor Vinge's _True Names_. They can't get you if they don't know
where you are. The other possibility is nano-defense. (Too bad bobbles
don't seem to be a physical possibility.)

Which will be widely available first, personal nukes, or personal nuclear
