Welcome MORS Wargaming Working Group!

I will post some additional after action info later in the weekend, but the major news for this blog is the connection made between those working the Connection Conference and those working the Military Operations Research Society (MORS) Wargaming working group (WG 30). There have been a few “long neurons” connecting the two groups for a while, but as both groups begin to grow, the use of this blog as a common area to share “what I’ve been up to’s” as well as links to longer works for comment makes more sense than trying to maintain two separate blogs.

I will be the “official” long neuron, being the new communications assistant to the MORS WG 30 leadership as well as co-chair for online development for Connections. So this will be “one stop shopping’ for information and news from both groups!

A mea culpa is however in order as cards several of you gave me with emails to add to the author rolls here somehow did not make it back with me, so with apologies, could you please email me at pvebber@gmail.com?

As a reminder of the ROE here, anyone can read the posts and comments, anyone with a wordpress account can comment, those with a wordpress account and author permissions can originate a post, and those with editor permissions can edit or delete posts and comments and edit or add new pages. Right now comments and posts are automatically accepted, but the editors reserve the right to delete or edit posts (with indication that we have done so) to maintain the professional atmosphere we strive to build here. We hope that continues to be unnecessary.

    Having let my MORS membership lapse (largely because of the NOFORN rule on the annual symposium), will you be posting WG30 news and announcements here? That would certainly be useful for us dangerous non-Americans.

    Yes, but it will of course be rendered devoid of anything you Wildling Northerners might find useful and the remainder couched in baseball and football analogies so you will be left confused… 😉

    I was there at the beginning of the MORS Wargaming Community of Practice in 2008, but am letting my MORS membership lapse as well. It seems pointless to carry on with an organization that won’t let you contribute in any meaningful way because of your birthplace.
