Iraqi Insurgency, Open Source, and the Bazaar2006May26

This article reminds me very much of The Lawrence Doctrine and Postindustrial Insurgency, from Islands in the Net:

Global Guerrillas: THE BAZAAR’S OPEN SOURCE PLATFORM
The decentralized, and seemingly chaotic guerrilla war in Iraq demonstrates a pattern that will likely serve as a model for next generation terrorists. This pattern shows a level of learning, activity, and success similar to what we see in the open source software community. I call this pattern the bazaar. The bazaar solves the problem: how do small, potentially antagonistic networks combine to conduct war? Lessons from Eric Raymond’s “The Cathedral and the Bazaar” provides a starting point for further analysis.
