2013 New Book – 5.1 Up — Chapters 7-20 Seeking Sponsors — Crowd-Sourcing Content, You Are Invited to Contribute to the First Book on Public Intelligence for Public Governance
UPDATE 2013-03-12. Now that my clearances have been reinstated, if I get a position in the secret world, I will be more constrained, both ending public posts, and submitting each chapter as written for Publications Review Board (PRB) approval (both CIA and DoD or other Cabinet agency versions) prior to posting. Donations still sought, and each donor will be a full partner in the preparation of the long needed integrative book. Thank you to all who have helped keep me going up to this point!
