Open Source and the Hive Mind

Open Source Intelligence in its most extreme conception is a form of hive mind where everybody contributes. We're not that far yet when talkin defence intelligence.

But meanwhile I enjoy myself in the Open Source Software. My latest toy is Audioscrobbler, a database that track what music you hear and then compiles lists, gives you suggestion for artists like the ones you like etc. Alas! The hive-mind at work. Now my listening to music (around the clock) can contribute to the great sum of music-listening around the world.

As a tacky side-effect I have included my real-time updated playlist in the side-bar. Not very beautiful, but quite fun...
