FirewallNOVA is a Web site based in Northern Virginia.

The title, as many locals know, refers to something so positive it serves as a barrier against bad vibes. As in, “we are your firewall of happiness.”

At one time, FirewallNOVA was a “news and opinion” site, but we realized that with the advent of social media such a forum was no longer needed. For intelligent, cogent, and balanced discussion of issues, where else would anyone wish to go beyond Twitter and Facebook?
