Whether you did or did not attend this year’s URW Symposium at Johns Hopkins University (10-11 March 2008), the proceedings are available online (hard copy typically arrives much later, but I didn’t couldn’t make it this year, so I won’t be getting a book). A few presentations stand out, even if 80% of the content was surely in the accompanying narrative.
The first is COL Karen Lloyd’s Experiences from the Field: Using Information Operations to Defeat AQAM (al-Qaeda and Associated Movements). COL Lloyd is from J3, Joint IO Warfare Center. The slides don’t give away anything new, except for one not about AQAM:
Effects-Based Public Affairs. More on this later.
