Ants and terrorists

Finally. Someone with some new thoughts on terrorism. Earlier I have been lamenting over my problems of judging terrorists as rational actors. But on John Robb's Blog "Global Guerillas" he introduces the systemic concept of "Stigmergy", the way that individual actors might be guided by enviromental signs. Ants and bloggers should be guided by these mechanics as well apperantly.

This is really mindboggling stuff.
