this morning caught Rep. Curt Weldon (R) talking about Able Danger at a press conference thurs, 15-Sep. Weldon voiced concerns about a hearing next week lead by Arlen Specter (heads Roberts' SCOTUS hearings). Weldon repeatedly said the 9/11 Commission told him Able Danger was "historically insignificant"; that after trying to communicate about Able Danger & first supporting the commission, Weldon said the "9/11C has lost my confidence"; mentioned video at Heritage Foundation of him discussing & presenting detailed information Able Danger on 23-May-2002 (Breaking the Stovepipes: Improving Intelligence Sharing for Homeland Security). interesting, wiki article has some interesting facts about Weldon. more: 9/11 Commission, Pentagon wants 'able danger' hearings closed, Officer: 9/11 panel didn't receive key information.
Able Danger was a data mining project; one aspect of data mining is pattern recognition & combinatorial game data mining caught my eye:
Combinatorial game data mining :: Since the early 1990's, with the availability of oracles for certain combinatorial games, also called tablebases (e.g. for 3x3-chess) with any beginning configuration, small-board dots-and-boxes, small-board-hex, and certain endgames in chess, dots-and-boxes, and hex; a new area for data mining has been opened up. This is the extraction of human-usable strategies from these oracles. This is pattern-recognition at too high an abstraction for known Statistical Pattern Recognition algorithms or any other algorithmic approaches to be applied: at least, no one knows how to do it yet (as of January 2005). The method used is the full force of Scientific Method: extensive experimentation with the tablebases combined with intensive study of tablebase-answers to well designed problems, combined with knowledge of prior art i.e. pre-tablebase knowledge, leading to flashes of insight. Berlekamp in dots-and-boxes etc. and John Nunn in chess endgames are notable examples of people doing this work, though they were not and are not involved in tablebase generation.

Centience. Predominantly Afroatlantean position of mystical calendric extremism, which takes binomic K-Time as a machinic effectuation of infallible electroscripture, with ensuing commitment to the century as encompassing the whole of true time (beyond which lies only Babylon-illusion). Applicable to Y2K itself, understood as the immanent realization of this doctrine.
