Blogging lesson learned: if one wishes to blog about a tweetstorm, either post right away or use screen captures. Mr. X tweetstormed an interesting take on reforming the US military. The primary theme was unity with egalitarianism. The US military as the People’s Liberation Army (circa Mao’s era of no ranks)? With a new Space Corps under weigh and a Cyber Corps within the next 5 years, is dispersing resources a good thing, or just necessary due to the poor stewardship of the last 8 years?
