Robert Steele: Liberation Technology Update

Advanced Cyber/IO, Autonomous Internet, Liberation Technology
Robert David STEELE Vivas

Liberation Technology is much broader than Information Communications Technology (ICT) and is not synonymous (although it should be) with Open Source Everything (OSE).  It seemed like a good time to provide an update on this key term.   Within the ICT arena, we distinguish Autonomous Internet (OpenBTS to Open Specturm), and Advanced Information Operations (AIO), the latter rooted in OSE and permitting M4IS2* at machine speed.

M4IS2:  Multinational, Multiagency, Multidisciplinary, Multidomain Information-Sharing and Sense-Making.
