The Rise of Open Source Intelligence


Can we exit the Culture of Fear and enter a newer society?

An Open Source Society consisting of a series of Citizen Intelligence Networks.

Visionary Cells well equipped with the knowledge and tools to govern

their bodies and all bodies of knowledge to govern the global body,

empowering the majority beyond our wildest dreams.



On January 16-20 a conference described as "James Bond morphing into

Hackers who morph into the Peace Corps who morph into moral

capitalists raising four billion from poverty through the power of

information and open source intelligence" will host 60 exhibits, 20

top speakers, and 400-600 international "players" at the Sheraton

Premiere in Tyson's Corner Virginia in the Washington D.C. area.

IOP '06

Information Operations, Open Source Intelligence,

and Peacekeeping Intelligence



Information Operations (IO) represents the new semantics of war &

peace, wealth & democracy. Information Peacekeeping (IPK) is the

converse of Information Warfare (IW). America is soon to have in

effect a range of Joint Intelligence Operations Centers or Commands

(JIOC) with embedded Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) feeds in all

languages on all topics, and the requisite man-machine Foreign

Language (FL) and Advanced Analytics (AA) able to make sense of all

information, in all languages, all the time.



Modern IO consists of Strategic Communications (the message), Open

Source Intelligence (the shareable reality), and JIOCS with FL and AA

(the technologies).



Modern IO is the new American "way of war" and offers enormous

potential in ten "IO-heavy" mission areas:



· Strategic Communication & Public Diplomacy

· Peacekeeping Intelligence & Information Peacekeeping

· Early Warning & Stabilization-Reconstruction Operations

· Homeland Defense & Emergency Responder Civil Support

· National Education & National Research for National Wealth



Join Congressman Rob Simmons (R-CT-02), Alvin & Heidi Toffler, and

many other world-class speakers including Canadian, Croatian, Dutch,

English, South African, and Swedish experts on the emerging

intersection of open source software, open spectrum, open source

information, open access copyright, and open societies.



All participants in the three day event will receive the new book on

IO, as well as new books on Commercial Intelligence and on

Peacekeeping Intelligence. One may elect to participate in only one

day, and/or the training day on Friday.



All participants receive three weeks of free access to Silobreaker

analytic link and visualization tools, and thousands of international

sources.
