Steele also was a member of the Adjunct Faculty of Marine Corps University in the mid-1990s.

From Robert himself:

“Your mission, if you wish to accept it, is to help create the Earth Intelligence Network. Make it your own. This is the new printing press, you control what, when, where, and how. This is a non-profit meant to augment human capacity and preserve the commonwealth. The only strong suggestions I have is that you focus on reality, that you integrate real-world budgets, and that you think about Serious Games with truthful data sets as the next big leap in understanding and blogging in time and space for results.

I think of bloggers as the Paul Revere’s of our time, digitally sounding the alarm, making sense, connecting dots. Bloggers can both discern, and disseminate. You are all, as are Hackers, pushing the edge of the envelope. You have the right stuff. We need more of it. In my view, up to this point you have been the militia, lurking in the woods and working often alone. The time has come to organize. I challenge you to do for public intelligence what LINUX has tried to do for open source software.”
