A Sea of Resources

As an Information Warfare Officer in the US Navy, there's a good chance that if you throw a rock at your place of work, you are more likely to hit a computer geek than water.  This is a good thing.  Not the throwing rocks part.  More the goodness it is to be surrounded by computer geeks.

Why's that?

On The Net Gang, Arriving. Ding Ding!

Firstly and importantly, a little bit about this blog's quasi-namesake:
A total of 176 (150 Navy and 26 Marines) enlisted radio operators were specially trained at a unique school located on the roof of the old Navy Department Building during 1928-1941. Known as the "On-The-Roof" Gang (OTRG), they were trained to intercept and analyze foreign radio communications. This group of dedicated and skilled operators formed the vanguard of the U.S. Naval Communications Intelligence efforts and laid the cornerstone of Naval Cryptology.1
As this new warfare domain called Cyberspace2 becomes a greater part of our lives every day, I felt it appropriate to adopt this name as we pioneer a path in (and for) Information Dominance.
