<nettime> fyi: strategy, tactics, & operations

  [this is a quote from a very interesting architectural
  writer whom defined these terms and architecture, in
  relation to these. then delved into ideas of stealth
  and camouflage amongst other things. fyi. thought it
  might be relevant to those questioning these things
  regarding organizing around a shared goal/purpose...]

   "Strategy is the motivation, the overview.

    Tactics is the positioning of the parts
    ready for the implementation of the strategy.

    Operations is the carrying through.

    Yes, the theory has a military origin..
    but it stands as an analysis of action
    and is useful in any situation where
    intention and material have to be combined."

    [p.115, what is architecture? an essay on landscapes,
    buildings, and machines, paul shepheard]
