DoD Taking Up Blogging?

Clay Shirky is reporting on a Department of Defense pilot project to use a blog to streamline communications between corporate partners working on what sounds like night-vision research. With its usual flair for branding, DoD has dubbed the effort Rapid Acquisition Incentive Net-Centricity, or “RAI/NC” for short. (Hey, how do you pronounce “RAI/NC” — “rank”? I sure hope not!)

Total cost? $450,000. Wow, maybe I should be pitching blogs to DoD, sounds like that’s where the margins are these days…

If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
