The Blogs of War

For all you fans of Thunder 6 - he is featured in an article on Milblogs and the men who write them in WIRED Magazine. There is a GREAT pic of him in Iraq, which opens the article on the title page.

Quoting from the Wired Article "He(Blackfive) describes Prakesh as borderline Einstein and Danjel Bout as "A real rock star"

(no argument from me)

Quoting " When he is not chasing down supplies or on patrol.............Bout is posting about the details of Army life in Language evocative of literrary warbloggers of yore like Thucydides, Homer, Thomas Paine and John Donne!


...later on Hockenberry writes" Bout's blog is one of the most genuine accounts anywhere of what life is like for a soldier in Iraq"

Several other very popular Milbloggers are also featured!

The article rawks!

*T6 - Can I negotiate your book deal?*

    You aren't reading it right! LOL

    Quoting from the Wired Article "He(Blackfive) describes Prakesh as borderline Einstein and Danjel Bout as "A real rock star"

    In the article they talk about several milbloggers.....and Blackfive references both Neil (Amour Geddon) and Danjel (Thunder 6) ....does that help now!
