My friend Matt (the other, more taciturn GroupIntel blogger) and I envisioned GroupIntel as a multi-faceted, multi-user environment for discussions and analysis on intelligence and security-related issues. For those who are not aware GI also includes a Wiki and discussion forum. Participation environment-wide has been small but productive and anyone (national, state, local or otherwise) who takes the time to register is welcome to join the fun.

While I’ve loved monopolizing the GI blog I should have let it revert back to its original purpose long ago, so I’ve gotten off of the shared soapbox and found my own at Haft of the Spear (drop me a note if you need me to explain it to you).

Old posts (hopefully with old comments) will be slowly migrated to the new site over the next week or so. Links to pals old and new will be added in time and comments/trackbacks will be on as long as the spam stays away.

GI will still be around though future content will adjust to reflect this latest change. For the pure, unadulterated blather and gibberish you’ve come to enjoy, please bookmark or subscribe to the new site.
