5GW Theory Timeline

5GW Theory Timeline

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3,095|Likes:
Published by Curtis Gale Weeks
This is a compilation of resources, from the Internet and elsewhere, which have discussed the theory of 5GW, or Fifth Generation Warfare, or Fifth Gradient Warfare. The list is incomplete, representing an early effort at such compilation, but may be of use for anyone wishing to explore the earliest discussion on the topic. The information here earlier appeared on-line at a blog called Dreaming 5GW. UPDATE: The links in this document to that blog, Dreaming 5GW, should now be restored, although the note in the forward to the Timeline says otherwise.

Notes on This Text
This text is a translation of the 5GW Theory Timeline, originally appearing at http://timeline.dreaming5gw.com, into a text/pdf format. As such, many stylistic changes from the original were required. However, the content included here has not been editedfrom the original version.Stylistic and formatting decisions for this document were intended for clarity and ease of use, but because this document isintended for personal use and use by a select, small group of acquaintances, the quickest route was deemed most appropriate. Inother words: not a lot of bells and whistles and perhaps even a little bit of negligence.Because this document is intended to be an archival version of the original website, little attention has been paid to the many“broken” links appearing here. Given the nature of the Internet, many of the listed “original” links to original sources will no longer lead to those sources. Primarily, links to web pages on d-n-i.net, dreaming5gw.com, and phaticcommunion.com will no longer work because those sites no longer exist; but other links may also be broken, for any number of reasons.The sources given here are listed in chronological order. In cases where sources were published on the same date but no time of day was given, a “best guess” evaluation determined the chronology.Readers should be aware that this document makes no claims to accuracy in the summarized information for the listed sourceswhich have discussed, at length or briefly, the theory of 5GW or the theory of the “generations of modern warfare.” The summariesare personal observations made by the authors of those summaries (in almost all cases, Curtis Gale Weeks) and were originallyintended to form the basis of a future deeper exploration of the subject: little more than journal entries.

What follows will seem a ragged, haphazard collection of sources and summaries of sources discussing the theory of “5GW”. Asanyone familiar with the subject will know, the depth and breadth of this document is laughable when compared to the manydiscussions that have filled the last several years: not much that has been written in the past couple of years is included. Indeed,many blog articles written even earlier do not appear here.The 5GW Theory Timeline was a project that simply required more time than I wished to devote to it. That is unfortunate. But whatfollows here might serve as a starting point for anyone newly coming into the discussion.The original website included the following on its About page:
AboutThe 5GW Theory Timeline began as a project for collecting and collating sources thatdiscussed, however in passing, the theory of 
 fifth generation warfare
or 
 fifth gradient warfare
.Anyone familiar with the subject will notice glaring holes in the Timeline. Althoughmany very early references to 5GW are included, the Timeline is far from complete; fewof the many references post-2006 have yet to be added, for instance. Nonetheless, actualdiscussion of 5GW did not begin until recently -- earliest on-line source thus far found isfrom August 19, 2003 -- and users of the Timeline may find the earliest references helpfulin understanding how the theory of 5GW began to take root.Since this is a reference tool that relies heavily on online sourcing, some links have brokenor changed between the time they were added to the Timeline and the present. Whenever  possible, we will update the links to direct back toward original sources. Some sourceshave simply disappeared from the internet, some links to original sources will not work, but those sources will remain as-is on the Timeline as a record of the development of thetheory of 5GW.Summaries included on each entry are entirely the view of the Timeline author who addedthe entry. Objectivity in summarizing the original source is our goal, but as with allinterpretation, bias cannot be ruled out. Length and breadth of summary, in my case, may be a measure of the available content in the linked source or may be a measure of my owninterest in what the original source addressed. Occasionally, I have added interpolationsof my own, but I have tried to note when I have. Visitors are encouraged to leavecomments on entries with any notes of their own.Curtis Gale Weeks
