Hulnick, Arthur S. "Intelligence Producer-Consumer Relations in the Electronic Era." International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence 24, no. 4 (Winter 2011-2012): 747-756.

This is a quick and useful look at this longstanding issue in the electronic era. Hulnick's conclusion: "[M]odern electronic systems have solved some intelligence problems but have created new ones. Clearly electronics has sped up some collection and delivery systems, but shortened the time available to analysts for making sense out of an increasingly large and complex set of incoming data. Electronics cannot help predict the future any more than older systems could. Thus, the basic conundrums of intelligence reamin the same as always."

From "Introduction": "This collection is based on a conference that was held at the UCD Clinton Institute for American Studies, University College Dublin, in February 2009."

Wilder, Dennis C. "An Educated Consumer Is Our Best Customer." Studies in Intelligence 55, no. 2 (Jun. 2011): 23-31. [https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/vol.-55-no.-2/an-educated-consumer-is-our-best-customer.html]

The author seeks to provide "a series of recommendations for the ODNI on redesigning the policy-intelligence interface and implementing a strategic communications strategy that leverages new social media so that the American people and the policy community will better understand and appreciate the centrality of the Intelligence Community to national security."
