Paul Ford has an offbeat fascination with military infographics. "No matter how abstract they are, these pictures describe systems that the U.S. military uses to make optimal, efficient decisions about killing other humans," he writes on Medium. The diagrams showcased in the article are complex and esoteric, proving comical by their complete lack of context with phrases like "Publish Subscribe Broker" and "COCOM 'Living Plans.'" He even discovers a proposed military framework that could be used to describe "anything that has ever existed and everything that has happened, in any situation."
