Reconnaissance is an attempt to make this writing more accessible. So often the articles refer to each other and I think it’s expecting too much to ask people to wander around the blog archives. I hope this will help. The regular old blog is still there. I hope “Reconnaissance” doesn’t sound like it’s trying too hard to be cool. Why this name? Look after the categories for an explanation.
Borrowing from French reconnaissance (“recognition”)
military observation of a region to locate an enemy or ascertain strategic features.
synonyms: preliminary survey, survey, exploration, observation, investigation, examination,
inspection; preliminary surveying or research.
