Hyrban plans revealed

,----[ Quote ]
| âOne of our hopes is that the open-source 
| community will speed up development of the 
| fuel cell and electrical network, as well as 
| other key technologies,â said Hugo Spowers, a 
| key partner in the Riversimple project and the 
| man behind Morganâs Lifecar fuel cell 
| prototype.


Reassessing U.S. Intelligence Operations in Afghanistan

,----[ Quote ]
| What commanders want and need is information 
| regarding the local population. Because of 
| this need, the report encourages collecting 
| data from âopen-sourceâ channels such as 
| civilian sources, NGOs, and other groups.
| âThe Cold War notion that open-source 
| information is âsecond classâ is a dangerous, 
| outmoded clichÃ,â the document says. 
| âLieutenant General Samuel V. Wilson, former 
| director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, 
| captured it perfectly: âNinety percent of 
| intelligence comes from open sources. The 
| other 10 percent, the clandestine work, is 
| just the more dramatic. The real intelligence 
| hero is Sherlock Holmes, not James Bond.ââ



The Linux Connection

,----[ Quote ]
| Turns out that all you need is a satellite dish (a one meter model will do),
| some knowledge of satellite communications (if you are of the geekish
| persuasion, you can become self-taught in these arts rather quickly) and
| familiarity with Linux, and tools (freely available on the Internet) for
| hacking Linux data feeds, you can access lots of useful data that is not
| supposed to be open to everyone.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
