COGNITIVE ARCHAEOLOGY: DIGGING FOR THE FOUNDATIONS OF PNM
I realize that have not posted any in-depth analysis in a few days but that is a result of a couple of factors - reading through a vast amount of research material for another project and " real world" commitments that will remain intense for a couple more weeks. I do have a post in the works though that builds on the earlier " White Noise" discussion but it is not yet finished.
In the interim I'd like to offer a set of point -counterpoint articles that take the interested reader to the days when some elements of PNM theory were just starting to fuse into intial concepts - at least that's how I'm reading these with the advantage of an outsider with hindsight:
1) "Network-Centric Warfare: Its Origin and Future
" by Vice-Admiral Arthur K. Cebrowski.
2) " The Seven Deadly Sins of Network-Centric Warfare
" by Dr. Thomas P.M. Barnett
The second article is a critique of the ideas presented in the first and it should have eyes lighting up in those who have read through The Pentagon's New Map
. I may possibly offer a critique of my own later today, assuming I can move the pile of paper off of my desk and still see straight afterwards.
