The fact that this date coincides with the beginnings of ROLF 2010 is not remarkable in and of itself. However, we believe that the intersection of the two efforts could, perhaps, turn out to be a collaboration remarkable not in coincidence, but in relevance. The two efforts, vastly different in focus, location, and methodology could, in combination, become a canonical example of non-linearity or at least exhibit the archetypical hallmark of non-linearity: the sum >> the parts. This combination is still in the making and should not be construed at this point as anything other than a developing idea. But it has actually matured to the point of having a designation and has been named after the Viking exemplar of maneuver warfare: Red Orm. Here we ll summarize Project Albert and ROLF 2010 before describing how they come together in the Red Orm project.
