This blog is maintained by me, Veli-Pekka Kivimäki, and I study, research and teach intelligence, particularly use of open sources of information like social media. This blog and all the contents are a personal project, reflecting my personal opinions, and they are not affiliated with my day job at the Finnish Defence Research Agency.

I have also done research and investigations with Bellingcat, and have previously posted there.

The focus of this blog is broadly speaking intelligence, with an emphasis on the use of open source information, as well as documenting related finds from archives.
