Changing topics a bit, I wanted to announce that my latest "article" (entitled Krog's New Weapon) is posted on the Defense AT&L website, along with the rest of the Mar/Apr 2008 issue. Don't miss the lively exchange in the From Our Readers section (hoo-boy, that was fun!). All you subscribers out there will receive your hardcopy in the mail in a few weeks.
There's a reason I referred to it as an "article," because this time, it's actually a science fiction story. So even if you're not a highly-decorated, often certified and fully trained defense technologist or acquisition professional like myself, you might still enjoy the story (it helps if you're a sci-fi fan).
I do this sort of thing periodically - writing fiction instead of a more traditional article. The first time it was a fairy tale, and there was the film noir spoof. And of course, there were the FIST comics (here's Part II). Now there's this sci-fi bit, and coming up in a few months is a modern fiction story, featuring none other than Socrates (assuming the editor like it).
(UPDATE: The file they posted at the link above is missing page 3 (of 4) - so go here and scroll down to page 24 to read the whole thing. I'll let them know on Monday and it should be fixed soon.)
