Wikistrat has had a blog for months now, but the postings were pretty much limited to noting analytic products as they emerged from simulations, so a relatively low frequency.
That changes now, as Wikistrat starts making the blog available for the global community of analysts to start populating with their own material in sort of a group blog dynamic.
- Nice post by Dr. Dr. Ehsan Ahrari, CEO of Strategic Paradigms, on Russian-Syrian relations.
- Summary analysis of recent global events by the Counter-Terrorism Desk.
- And a 24-hour ask-the-expert drill with Senior Expert Zacharias Michas, currently Director of Studies at the Institute for Security and Defense Analysis in Athens.
Over time, the goal is to get the group blog as the primary public "center of online gravity" for Wikistrat, as we switch from a more "this is Wikistrat" public-facing site. Of course, a start-up sticks with that sort of here-we-are approach for as long as necessary to build up its initial clientele. But as that process proceeds quite nicely across 2012, the natural maturation of the site begins - meaning we shift from attracting eyes with our company story to doing the same with analytic product that flows in ever-increasing amounts.
