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.
