Take-Aways Civil Affairs is focal point outside the wire. –Spies need support, do not share well. Bloggers, not informants, are key. –This is about initiative, not control. Bottom-up horizontal connection is key. –Sharing at all levels, not top down control. Proof is in the doing, not the talking. –Enough on wanting tranformation. Be.
Four Reforms in Need of OPEN End Fraud, Wage Peace, Educate All OSINT is 80 To 95% of the Answer Transpartisan Reality-Based Budget Demand Reform Before 2008; Home Rule Also
Ron Paul? At a delicate point Restore Constitution yes! MISSING from his deal Transpartisanship Electoral Reform Sunshine Cabinet Balanced budget Call for impeachment & indictment of Cheney, indictment of Rumsfeld, Gulliani, and Silverstein
The Earth Intelligence Network Transparency Rules! This could be the process that creates sustainable peace and prosperity while nurturing the five billion at the Bottom of the Pyramid (BoP), the four trillion a year marketplace addressed by C. K. Prahalad.
Open Source Software I of III Not free of cost, but free to be improved. If F/OSS communist, then Microsoft fascist. Challenge to Microsoft: stable and transparent APIs, dump VISTA, start over on OSS base
Conversion of Paper Documents to Digital Form Automated Extraction of Data Elements From Text and Images Standardizing and Converting Data Formats Processing Images, Video, Audio, Signal Data Automated Foreign Language Translation Open LiteratureNon-Text DataRestricted Information Detection of Alert Situations Clustering and Linking of Related Data Statistical Analysis to Reveal Anomalies Detection of Changing Trends Interactive Search and Retrieval of Data Graphic and Map- Based Visualization of Data Modeling and Simulations Collaborative Work Notetaking and Organizing Ideas Structured Argument Analysis Desktop Publishing and Word Processing Production of Graphics, Videos and Online Briefings Revision Tracking and Realtime Group Review CISCO AON: Intelligent Network Enables Applications At All Points Open Office is great, it would be greater if it did all this. Note to CISCO: Buy Sun Now Before Google Does OSS II
Truly Exciting OS SW III ETL: Extract, Transform, Load ETL allows applications to take data from outside sources, turn it into something usable and then make it available for loading in a database or business intelligence application. Steele to Gates: BLOG THIS! Hint: Amazon+CISCO AON+Sun +STRONG ANGEL+IBM. Google? Out of fantasy cash. No more clogged proprietary code. Are you in or out?
Open Source Hardware Subset of Sustainable Recyclable Design Kofi Annan gets it. Infinite wealth to stabilize earth demands open source everything Includes logic design Top priority is reducing toxicity while increasing re-use. Reject ugly/old code and proprietary code.
Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Harnessing All for One and One for All OSINT HUMINT SIGINT IMINT MASINT
Open Spectrum End of Broadcast, Age of Connection Assigned frequencies are dead, dead, dead Smart sending rules Permissions system stifles innovation & wastes bandwidth See the FAQ, Jock Gill taught me on this.
Open Money I Current monetary system based on scarcity & control, and creates waste Proprietary Expensive Feudal Occult Enslaving Unsustainable Open money is the global infrastructure for the emergent parallel monetary system. Sufficient Supports public good Democratic Open source Free Sustainable Michael Linton Jean-Francois Noubel Open Money is money that must be earned to be respected.
Open Money II Blogger Key Words Virtual money LETSystems Open money Open society Community currencies Open source Collaboration Open money manifesto right of monetary creation – sovereign and universal
Open Money III Eric Harris-Braun Open money can reflect both tangible asets and intangible values. Open money can be controlled by the local community to meet its needs.
Open Money IV Open Money, the coming of free/open source currencies, millions of them, that will sweep out the monopoly and pathology of the current system Open Money is a necessary condition for all the other opens and especially those I discuss today. Open Money is going to happen within the next 2-5 years, no matter what. With more conventional money investment, it will happen sooner and better. Open Money is our passionTheTransitioner is on the job. Jean-Francois Noubel
Open Culture & Content Opposite of cults including all extremist religions & gangs Combines YIN Circle (the process of collaboration) and YANG pyramid (the structure of shared knowledge) Death to trolls Creative Commons
Open Networks I created this in the 1990s. A smart guy named Spivak created this in One day Id like to have a group discuss this in detail and create some kind of map on where we need to put funding to accelerate this. If it exists, please point me to it.
Open Society Popper, by contrast, held that social affairs are unpredictable, and argued vehemently against social engineering. He sought to shift the focus of political philosophy away from questions about who ought to rule toward questions about how to minimize the damage done by the powerful. The book was an immediate sensation and has remained a landmark on the left and right alike for its defense of freedom and the spirit of critical inquiry. Civil liberties are fundamental. In open societies, government is responsive and tolerant, and political mechanisms are transparent and flexible. The state keeps no secrets from itself in the public sense; it is a non-authoritarian society in which all are trusted with the knowledge of all. Political freedoms and human rights are the foundation of an open society.government stateauthoritarianPolitical freedomshuman rights A Republic, if you can keep it. All Members of Congress failed us and are impeachable.
Open Government The Ultimate: Constant Participatory Democracy Time for a Constitutional Convention Time to destroy the two corrupt parties Time to adopt Transpartisanship Time to demand Open Budgets Online Time to Restore We the People as sovereign No prisoners! This is non-negotiable! BLOG!

Wild Card: Water & War Desalinating Water Takes Energy We Dont Have Source: The State of the World Atlas (1997), chart 54, 53 Hyper-Arid Sub-Humid Arid Semi-Arid Water Pollution
Wild Card: Energy Solutions Available, Bottom-Up Demand Needed Saudi Arabia lied USG covered it up from 1974 onwards WIRED Cover Story in 2000 nailed it Good example of what happens when public tunes out Alternatives available now but public mind is wandering. Blogging True Cost Information and Blogging Alternatives is your sacred duty and greatest contribution to all.

Twelve Vital Policy Domains Agriculture Communication Diplomacy Economy Education Energy Family Health Justice Security Society Water I culled these from the varied Mandate for Change books with chapters from the wanna-be Cabinet candidates of each party. These are the core domains. Economy includes Debt. Society Includes Civic Duty as well as Immigration.
Ten State-Based Challenges I chose these on the basis of their demographic numbers and strategic relevance to determining whether or not we can sustain the Earths ecology. Africa is the Wild Card. The 900M most powerless whom we have looted and victimized since time immemorial is the moral and economic challenge of our time.

Intelligence & Information Operations (I2O) Evolutionary Eras 1st Generation 2nd Generation 3rd Generation 4th Generation 5th Generation 6th Generation 7th Generation What Do We Need to Know Easy: Where is the army? Easy: Where are the trenches? Moderate: How many with what? Hard: Watch every non-state actor. Hard: Watch everything on the fly. Hard: Make sense of billions of bits. Very Hard: 24/7, 33+ languages, 150 dialects & plot it on map (automated).
Four Levels of MindWar STRATEGIC: Educate ourselves & poor so the latter can create stabilizing infinite wealth OPERATIONAL: Understand perceptions, especially cultural, tribal, ethnic, historical, gender TECHNICAL: Buy right stuff at right time and no waste TACTICAL: One man, one bullet on the dark side, wage peace everywhere else without creating black markets Your government is operating on 2% of the relevant information. The gap between people with power and those with knowledge is huge. We have zero appreciation for history, culture, ethnicity, or non-Western values. We dont speak 33 languages, only 7 and only a few of us, and no dialects at all.
War and Peace in the Digital Era Command inherent in intent, not direction Education determines detection & resilience Close all bases, have virtual/stealth eyes on Global grid can not be controlled, only helped Brainpower instead of Firepower Open Source Agency $3B/Year at FOC $1.5B/year for global networks focusing on 150 key topics ($10M each/year) $1.5B/year for 50 community information sharing networks, 114, 119, EarthGame *is* reality, everyone plays themselves
We were here in 2006… 9-11 & Katrina, then multiple policy failures Here in 2007! US public scared back into reading and thinking; 75K amputees, GAO declares USA insolvent, 27 secessionist movements, home rule up, and corporate personality down. Critical Junctures Our Advantage I

Warning Notice DoD is developing Sentient World Simulation (SWS), a really expensive and badly conceptualized program to mirror the real world individual by individualonly they decide who you are and what you think. The Matrix Expands. For the truly indiscriminate…share it all.

Hackers & Bloggers Rule! To understand the role of reputation in the open-source culture, it is helpful to move from history further into anthropology and economics, and examine the difference between exchange cultures and gift cultures. "Abundance makes command relationships difficult to sustain and exchange relationships an almost pointless game. In gift cultures, social status is determined not by what you control but by what you give away." From: To Blog for Peace End Secrecy, Be Happy
