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.

Men vs. Women or Love vs. Materialism?

Amy Wolf | Dowd charges all women with a weakness that only a privileged few are able to consider. This elitism is compounded by her unwillingness to acknowledge the role media plays. She rails on half-starved, “dithery singletons” like Ally McBeal and Carrie Bradshaw, but does not critique the industry and advertisers they exist for. more...  2 Comments

Protest Henry Kissinger and Colombian President Alvaro Uribe (Union Killer!) at NYU -- Thursday, 6 PM

SALVADOR ALLENDE TE QUEREMOS | This panel, ominously named "New Political Policies
for the Americas" is no
neutral "dialogue" about the way forward for the
people of South America.
NYU is giving the stage to Kissinger and Uribe to lay
out neoliberal
policy--policy that has and continues to open the way
for union-busting,
corporate dominance and manipulation by predatory
lending agencies. It is
no surprise that NYU gives a voice to such characters,
because here at NYU
the administration follows the same policy of busting
unions for corporate
gain.

DIY Park

Visual Resistance | Speaking of badass non-confrontational temporary street art, San Francisco art collective Rebar pulled off an incredible intervention last month by turning a parking space into a park. Armed with rolls of sod, a shade tree, a bench, and nickels for the meter, they created an oasis of greenspace in the middle of downtown. Their explanation is smart as hell and worth reading in full:

The initial PARK(ing) intervention occurred on November 16, 2005 from noon until 2 p.m., without incident or interference from any level of institutional authority. Sort of makes you wonder what else you can do in a parking space . . [Read More] more...  0 Comments

Sports and Athletes held accountable

John C Calhoun | The world is being held accountable for their actions, ....this is evident by the number of lawsuits, or the pushy mothers that want public education to make their less then "genetic" offspring Einsteins. So why do we allow athletes to get away without being held accountable for their performance on and off the field?

First...athletes are paid a ton of money and in many cases hold the fans and the owners over a barrel especially when represented by greedy, slimy agents such as Scott Boras. Owners, especially in major league baseball are forced to bid-up the going price of free-agents and have to resign average players at money that the average worker in American will not even come close to making in their entire working career.

Greedy athletes demand high money, agents become slimier and the fans only end up paying more for the price of a cheap seat, warm beer and a hot dog that they will burp up for the rest of the game. Yet the athlete all too often underperforms. Athletes get hurt and still we pay. Athletes sit on the bench, and still we pay. Athletes get cut from teams and yet the team might still owes millions to these aged players that made their fame while on steroids.

So why not make them accountable? Why not include contracts that have performance standards in place and when an athlete fails to perform, for whatever the reason......they return a portion of their salary. For instance, in the recent free-agent frenzy in baseball for "average" pitchers...owners are shelling out millions for players with barely a .500 win/loss record. Well, go ahead and shell out the millions but guarantee yourself that when the athlete underperforms, as many will.....that their salary will be reduced accordingly.

Now that reduction in pay saves the owner money, right? Wrong......the owners are also making money and cheating the fans so give the "accountability clause" and the money involved back to the community in which the major league team plays in. In most cases, that team held the town over the fire pit and demanded partial payment for a new stadium or the likes. So the clause should demand that underperforming athletes “rebate” their salary to the community, to the schools, fires, police and civic improvement. Let the community benefit not only from the performance of athletes in terms of a winning team but also benefit from the underperformance of their star athletes in terms of accountability and a rebate of their salary.

Athletes make big money, so hold them accountable. Athletes live in a community, so make them support that community. Owners use a community, so make them apart of that community.
