Interesting blog notice sent to me by Mark Safranski, where someone is describing network attacks in the style of PNM. It’s pretty cool and it’s found at tdaxp. What this blogger is doing, whether he or she realizes it or not, is translating an implied concept from PNM that I explore a bit in BFA: what it might look and feel like if a state learned to fight 9/11-like. Commentary interesting as well. Thanks to ZenPundit for the lead.
I don’t always follow Tdaxp’s logic, but I don’t think there is a more avid fan of my work who so routinely trashes it completely, which certainly makes he/she/it an interesting blogger.
I offer no comment. I would need roller-skates to keep up with Tdaxp.
But the funny book cover art is worth the price of admission.
This is a truly bizarre and equally brilliant post, probably the best display of horizontal thinking in a blog I’ve ever seen.
Me? I had to go lie down with a Corona Extra after reading it.
After reading so much Tdaxp, I’m beginning to think I like “Coming Anarchy” more, because they treat PNM/BFA as tools and less as debating points (a weakness with Tdaxp).
and a mention in The Newsletter: Transforming U.S. forces and the World: Where are we now in this dual task? (also available in OOo Writer-compatible doc format)
Completely positive reviews? Nope. But I don’t grow from completely positive reviews. Critical, informed reviews from an expert like Dr. Barnett is exactly what I need. And he was kind enough to do so publicly.
My reaction: woot!
