Bruce Sterling has written: "Robert Steele is about 100 times as smart and 10,000 times as dangerous as the best of the hackers, for he is successfully hacking the most challenging of bureaucracies, the U.S. Intelligence Community, and doing it for the right reasons."
I don't believe the first half, but I am living up to the second half--ethically. In the course of 60 years, starting as the son of an oil engineer and liviing twenty years in Asia and South America before coming home to do an AB in Political Science and an MA in International Relations, I have gone through two 20 year careers: first as a Marine Corps infantry and S-1/Adjutant (personnel and security), then as a spy and the senior civilian responsible for creating the Marine Corps Intelligence Center, going on to champion Open Source Intelligence (OSINT).
Now I begin my "big push" for Collective Intelligence - Panarchy.
