Dominic Farace is one of a handful of pioneers who have defined the Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and now the Public Intelligence domain, discipline, community of practice, whatever you want to call it. Where others sought to extract cash by doing, this pioneer sought to create value by connecting dots to dots, dots to people, and people to people. We hold him in the highest esteem. Below is his earlier citation for a Golden Candle Award, followed by his briefing to OSS 2000.
Dr. Dominic J. Farace, GrayNet (The Netherlands) OSS 21 (2000): Dr. Dominic Farace, founder and leader of Graynet, and the foremost champion of Gray Literature discovery, acquisition, and exploitation.
