Podcast on War 2.0

There is a worthwhile interview on the altogether very worthwhile netzpolitik.org (at least for readers that know German) with Thomas Rid, who not only has excellent taste (having chosen the same fjiord layout for his wordpress blog as me) but recently published War 2.0: Irregular Warfare in the Information Age with Marc Hecker.

The podcast spends quite some time on soldier’s blogs and their potential value as  PR in the various counterinsurgency efforts the US is currently involved in. This is something milbloggers have been saying for quite some time and which the Army seems to be picking up on, slowly but surely. (Am thinking of LTG William Caldwell’s appearance at the 2008 Milblogging Conference for example).

I have ordered the book and can’t wait to read it!
