    Jarret Brachman told us a while back:

    Jihadi movement participants, he [al-Awlaki] argues, should also use computers, CD-ROMs, and DVDs to circulate large quantities of jihadi information—in the form of books, essays, brochures, photographs, and videos—in a highly compressed fashion.

    I know that in theory, it doesn’t surprise me too much — but visuals like these bring it home to me in a way that reading words never will:



    Merchandise — CDs and DVDs, the coin of the info-realm.

    BTW, that Brachman article, High-Tech Terror: Al-Qaeda’s Use of New Technology, will be familiar to some who read here, but is worth reading if you don’t already know it.
