James Carrion (MUFON) is Blogging

James Carrion, Director of MUFON Internatonal, has started a blogging effort called, “Follow the Magic Thread,” and I for one am happy to see it. You can check out an older Binnall of America Audio interview with Mr. Carrion here.As the head of what may be the largest civilian ufo organization in the world, Mr. Carrion is in position that can do much to advance the study of UFOs.

So far his blogging efforts have been focused on the subject of disinformation within ufology. He talks about different techniques to distract and confuse people in the field, and has several posts dealing with his experiences over at the Open Minds Forum.

Disinformation is a subject that probably deserves more attention than it gets, especially when looking at it from an objective, “how its done” viewpoint. On the other hand, the more time spent on disinformation, the less time can be spent developing ideas on “where do we go from here.” One of the reasons I let my MUFON membership lapse is that I didn’t see an obvious path forward.

So I’m glad to see Mr. Carrion putting fingers to keyboard at Follow The Magic Thread, but I hope in the future he spends more time detailing his vision for the future of the field and what we need to move forward.
