Open Source Intel Analyst – New York (Storyful)

I’ve only just begun getting my feet wet with open source investigation techniques and citizen journalism, but this job ad from Storyful sounds like something to grow into:

Open Source Intel Analyst – New York

Since 2010, Storyful’s newsroom has been working at the intersection of social media, news and technology to help media partners tell the stories that matter most. Our heritage lies in the discovery, verification, acquisition and contextualization of eyewitness video – but now we do so much more.

We are seeking a skilled researcher whose instincts are equal parts investigative journalist, intelligence analyst and social media junkie. This person should be comfortable studying and moving within online communities – some with fairly unsavory or extreme ideologies – for the purpose of detecting patterns, discerning plans and identifying the players operating outside the trending topics of the day.

I’m not really looking for a job, so much as a model for how the future will likely work, with regards to media, truth and transmission of information…

A fault in Segment 227641

When the TOTU Auditors came and examined our Records of Processing, they found a fault in Segment 227641.

It was determined that our, as people call it, “Blockchain of Blame” had been scrubbed following the Incident. As a result a lot of automated buck-passing had gone on among distributed autonomous sub-processes, and accountability had gone well beyond the ‘Cloud’ into that place beyond the clouds, where vapor meets Outer Space – the place where our prayers are either answered, terminated, re-routed, delayed, destroyed, aggregated or passed on. Where the Sorters divide everything into Channels, for the Sifters who pass it back down to us the Scanners, the Monitors, and the Watchers.

Which were we? Were we all three? All four? Five? Six? ALL-ONE like the soap the robots use. They are obsessed with it.

Either way, this was almost definitely why the dragons came. As a result of us having breached the protective planetary sphere with our cares and worries. Our complaints were flying out to the stars and beyond.

At first people couldn’t really see them floating in the skies above us. Until a few Spotters started catching and carefully holding mere skewed corner-eye glimpses out into “verified group dragon sightings” such that neuro-typicals were also learning to see them in broad daylight.
