Paul Adams: As I was listening to the 9/11 segment of the interview, you should know I just viewed a documentary where Larry Silverstein in front of a group of Jews, explained how in April 2000 – 17 months before 9/11 – he was reviewing the blueprints for the new WTC towers which were to be rebuilt, and on which construction did not start until 2002.  Here’s the clip. Action starts at 34:54

Because Tweets Are Not Always the Truth

Posted: 03 May 2013 04:41 PM PDT

Can emerging technologies aid in filtering out the untrusted and unverified chattering of the masses? Using the recent Boston Marathon bombings as an example where this kind of technology would be useful, the MIT Technology Review article “Preventing Misinformation from Spreading through Social Media” explains some possible solutions on their radar.

When people play detective on Reddit and other social media sites with the goal of sharing information quickly as opposed to ensuring accuracy, false accusations can be made – such as the case with Sunil Tripathi. Researchers from Masdar Institute of Technology and the Qatar Computing Research Institute plan to launch Verily as a platform that could combat situations like that one.

The article states:

“Verily aims to enlist people in collecting and analyzing evidence to confirm or debunk reports. As an incentive, it will award reputation points—or dings—to its contributors. Verily will join services like Storyful that use various manual and technical means to fact-check viral information, and apps such as Swift River that, among other things, let people set up filters on social media to provide more weight to trusted users in the torrent of posts following major events.”

This will be an interesting sector to watch as there is a growing awareness of social media’s distortional lever.

Robert Steele on Open Source Intelligence in 2013

Beyond Search, April 4, 2013

Robert Steele has been a prescient thinker and actor in the intelligence sector for decades. In 1979 he was competitively selected to join the Central Intelligence Agency’s clandestine service. He spent nine years with the CIA, doing three tours overseas as a case officer recruiting and handling agents. In 1986, helped write the Marine Corps Master Intelligence Plan (MCMIP) as well as a plan for a Marine Corps Intelligence Center (MCIC). In the last 30 years, Mr. Steele has worked on a wide range of projects around the world.

In the interview which appeared in HighGainBlog, he said:

For all the money we spend on it, the secret world is not really providing the return on investment taxpayers should expect. Intelligence – decision support – is simply not being provided to everyone that needs it.

His views on the relationship of intelligence to decision support caught my attention as well. He said:

Which Vendor Will Be the Next Autonomy and Endeca?

At a recent search conference, I sat in the audience and marveled at the disconnect between the past that was and the present which is unfolding now. Several speakers dismissed the notions of precision and recall. In their place, the search wizards (who shall remain nameless) emphasized that search had to be “good enough.” The challenge, therefore, was to define “good enough.”

I sat quietly. At my advanced age I don’t have the energy to revisit the long and mostly disappointing trajectory of one of the most overhyped and misrepresented enterprise solutions—information retrieval. The list of companies which have spouted grandiose promises of universal information access, real time search, and actionable information reaches back to the early days of RECON and Orbit, STAIRS III, the long forgotten InQuire with its forward truncation, and Smart.

Where are these game changing vendors now?
