Miliblogging....

A few posts ago I spoke of Ignatieff's "Virtual War" and the questions it raised about how (at least in 1999) the nature of war seemed to be undergoing a significant -- and morally challenging -- change. The greatest concern was the extent to which modern technology was eliminating the human contact factor in warfare -- at least for those on one side of the battlefield.

The post-9/11 wars (on terror and in Afghanistan and Iraq), however, have proven to be very real. And as John Hockenberry's piece on 'miliblogs' in the current issues of Wired Magazine makes clear, technology is having quite the opposite effect by making personal reflections on combat almost widely accessible and almost instantaneous.

An interesting piece....
