I am very sad that such a useful report as this was intended for military use but this is a very well researched discussion of stigmergy in human systems that provides an excellent grounding for anyone interested in the area. However, it feels a bit like using the results of Nazi eugenics experiments: useful knowledge, immorally obtained.
