The HipBone NOSI

A net-based open source intelligence resource
This page is my portal for research regarding (i) the "new" warfare and (ii) the religious drivers and implications of the recent, tragic events in New York and Arlington and their sources and repercussions in Afghanistan and elsewhere. I put it together for Stephen O'Leary's seminar in games and simulation at USC's Annenberg School, and it makes no claim to completeness: I have tried to avoid the obvious in favor of some lesser known and more richly rewarding URLs, and I hope it will prove of interest even to those who have contributed one way or another to its present form.

As always, I am grateful to Richard Landes, Stephen O'Leary and others at the Center for Millennial Studies for having the insight to be on top of the important religious issues in current events ahead of time, and to Michael Wilson of 7Pillars for his insights into open source intelligence and much else besides.
