Open-source intelligence (OSINT) is intelligence collected from publicly available sources. In the intelligence community (IC), the term “open” refers to overt, publicly available sources (as opposed to covert or clandestine sources); it is not related to open-source software or public intelligence.
Working with Wikipedia helped me understand what relevance and notability had in common. Opening up a development environment to the general Internet public made possible the building of a mostly complete repository of knowledge called by founder, Jimmy Wales “The Sum of all Knowledge”. The flagship tokens, “Be Bold” and “Assume Good Faith” were the driving forces for the energy that was directed at Wikipedia 1.0. Nowadays, Wikipedia is thought of as ‘complete’ but that is far from the case. Much work can be done to fill in missing facts, figures and images. Of course, this work is voluntary but compensation comes in a myriad of forms much more valuable than national currencies of any sort. If you’re one of those “show-me-the-money” people, don’t worry. You aren’t included. learn more
The longer I live, the older I get. I have learned so many things the hard way, but I do learn from most of my mistakes, thank God.
The biggest mistakes I’ve made came from trusting the wrong people with privileged information. I gave in to the demand to answer questions that were neither fair nor reasonable to people I did not have to answer to. I have been used, even by close relatives and spouses, to find out things about my friends that were none of their business.
It’s ironic how much treachery and betrayal, usually over trivial matters, is woven tightly into the fabric of society, to the point that children betray parents, in-laws betray in-laws, and even wives betray husbands. The vice-versa world of dollars and secrets sometimes leaves us tearing up what God has put together, forcing us to support things that make no sense at all to anyone.
Sacred trust may have something to do with guarding the heart. Friendships are the most precious commodities on earth and my most vehement desire in life to accommodate my less fortunate friends in a shelter of my own design. I wish to become a gracious host so I can demonstrate real hospitality. Allowing people into one’s personal space requires courage and trust. Intentional, sustainable communities of the future will require high levels of advanced communication far beyond the shallow conversations of our day.
Even in our sleep, pain, which cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart until, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God. From Agamemnon by Aeschylus 458 B. C.
The whole planet these days is a theater of war and hostility. The tragedy of the commons continues. *sigh*
Whereas biohacking concentrates on the body, and consciousness hacking explores the inner experience, neurohacking is somewhere in the middle, focusing on the mind-brain interface – the inter…

SYZYGY17 is a convergence of both people and their meanings. Identity has nothing to do with a card in my pocket or yours. It has to do with how I am known by you. Like John said:
I know you
you know me
one thing I can tell you is you’ve got to be free…
From ‘Come Together’ – Beatles
So come together in Carbondale, Makanda, Paducah or in the field out in front of the Army Base. E pluribus unim.
Growing up during the Cold War in Kentucky gave my world-view a little less than complete treatment as to who I would become, what I would do for a living and how my relationships would later serve mainly to break my heart and hang me out to dry. In spite of all that, I managed to survive to my current age of 61 and am determined not to let the remainder of my life on Earth get dominated by the Evil One. I have wasted plenty of breath trying to convince certain close relatives and distant friends that something positive is going on in the world, completely separate and apart from what is reported on TV News programs. (There’s a reason they are called ‘programs’ by the way.)
Recently, I was introduced to an awesome term which to me represents that “lost chord” that The Moody Blues sent me in search of about four decades ago. If you’ve been following me along in my various web-spaces and spheres of influence (and confluence), you’ll “get”, as I have, the full scope of what this little term ‘syzygy‘ means in all of its glory as a generalized principle much akin to the meta-term SYNERGY of the 20th Century, which I learned of through reading books by R. Buckminster Fuller. Just have a look:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a syzygy (from Greek συζυγία ‘pair’) is a relation between the generators of a module M. The set of all such relations is called the “first syzygy module of M“. A relation between generators of the first syzygy module is called a “second syzygy” of M, and the set of all such relations is called the “second syzygy module of M“. Continuing in this way, we derive the nth syzygy module of M by taking the set of all relations between generators of the (n − 1)th syzygy module of M. If M is finitely generated over a polynomial ring over a field, this process terminates after a finite number of steps; i.e., eventually there will be no more syzygies (see Hilbert’s syzygy theorem). The syzygy modules of M are not unique, for they depend on the choice of generators at each step.
The sequence of the successive syzygy modules of a module M is the sequence of the successive images (or kernels) in a free resolution of this module.
Buchberger’s algorithm for computing Gröbner bases allows the computation of the first syzygy module: The reduction to zero of the S-polynomial of a pair of polynomials in a Gröbner basis provides a syzygy, and these syzygies generate the first module of syzygies.

Notice the article remains a “stub” class article. I’ve been a Wikipedia contributor and am actually one of the first “custodians” on Wikiversity – a sisterproject from the Wikimedia Foundation the stewardship group that maintains Wikipedia, Wictionary, Wikibooks, Wikiversity and other “sisterprojects” across many languages and contexts. All of this coordinated effort impressed me early on as far back as 2005, when I first registered an account at “meta” – the multi-lingual portal for all the Wikimedia Foundation’s projects.
The reason I’m telling you all this is to announce a long-term dream of mine to get my music “out there” without prostituting myself to the commercial media world and making some undeserving nitwit rich with my not-so-ordinary musical prowess. The missing link is not simply the interface but the infrastructure and licensing schema that will allow my debut without taking my soul to a bad place.The other reason is because of the complexity involved in get Wikipedians, Wikiversitans and other Wikians working together as a qualified whole. The SYZYGY17 Project may do the trick. We shall see.
My new Web Radio Program which I hope to launch into the testing phase this May is called “Across the Wikiverse“ and is inspired by the Lennon-McCartney song Across the Universe which I thought more than adequate to cover my eclectic set of interests. I decided to go ahead and enter the SYZYGY17 project into the Wikiversity STREAM education series as an extension of a suspended project that never got to blossom, thanks to my extended personal demise back in 2007 (continued from my first personal demise of September 2001 – The Day the Music Died… again). Please, Lord … no more personal demises. OK? amen.
Everyday language holds the key to future situations involving people, places, property and plans. The advent of the Internet broadens the horizons for those who are connected but how can it overcome the barriers to collectively-rendered critical thinking and problem-solving? Indeed, using semantic applications in civic and organizational situations is promising as code libraries and datasets grow in quantity, and to a lesser degree in quality. Currently, I am gathering thoughts on the value of attention while focusing mine on the vocabularies of ontologists and context builders. This document is yet another placeholder for a long-ranging projection of the world to come.
syz·y·gy [ˈsizijē/] noun
- a conjunction or opposition, especially of the moon with the sun.
“the planets were aligned in syzygy”
The word has a huge context and connotation far beyond the seemingly simple concepts surrounding a celestial alignment. For example in Jungian Psychology, he uses the term to connote a pair of connected or corresponding things most notably “animus and anima” the unusual quality possessed by all humans each gender having an innate representative of the opposite. In other words, all men have a feminine side and all women have a masculine side.
OzoneFarm has begun a new series of projects to meld, combine, merge, incubate and “syzygize” (compare to R. Buckminster Fuller’s “synergize”) a whole lot of special projects in one swoop. Check out the document in progress here or here.
The Common Good is always there waiting for some attention. It seems that attention is at a premium these days with the bombardment of our psyches with the steady stream of nonsense coming from the commercially prostituted media that has driven sanity to the margins of daily life. Who are we to withhold ourselves from the task of restoring Common Sense to our lives?
OzoneFarm is here to assist in the process of realization of the ideal for our own slice of the “masses” which is fairly small according to our year-end stats. But our aim is more toward quality rather than quantity. The ideal that we look to is not of this current world. It comes from a future world that can only be imagined and scarcely even described. All we know for sure is that justice and love will be the dominant themes.
Building real community requires openness, honesty and oneness of both heart and mind. The confusing forces that plague civic life and the overall well-being planet-wide appear to have a common source – an inordinate desire for material gain on the part of an ever-thinner slice of Humanity. Our philosophy is based in the belief that Community is Capital. To us, wealth consists of physical well-being, spiritual liberation and collective cognition of Earth’s ecosystem. It has nothing to do with finance, commerce or even government.
The battle lines are drawn along physical boundaries using ideals that are functions of collective acceptance of a few principles that empower mainly those who have material advantage through the usurpation of civil authority. This condition creates wide-spread misery and despair and results in crime and misbehavior on every level. Every problem ranging from irreparable damage to the ecosystem to mass starvation of innocent children is solvable through a return of the uniquely Human faculty of critical thinking and problem-solving that has delivered us through two World Wars and into a third. This war, though, is one of mind and spirit..
In 2016, we hope to show what can be achieved through tightly-focused community development and cyber-active vocational rehabilitation of our systems and networks. We are ramping up our efforts to build brick-and-mortar instances of maker spaces, rebuild centers, B corporations, permaculture projects, local food networks and other down-to-earth efforts to change things at the local level. At the same time, we are working on forming a collectively-rendered prototype of a new system of accountability and communication based, not upon greed but upon the κοινωνία principle.
I wasn’t there .. I am here.
In fact I wasn’t even born yet and neither were you.
History repeats itself, though. It’s not like a cyclic or circular thing though. It’s more like a spiral. The Human Family needs to just grow up. War kindof sucks don’t you think? You must respond to my post to get my attention. Even if you are my sister or close kin. That’s just the way things ARE these days.
