The OSINT Curious Project
The OSINT Curious Project is a source of quality, actionable, Open Source Intelligence news, original blogs, instructional videos, and a bi-weekly webcast/podcast. Most of all, we want to inspire people to look outside of their OSINT-comfort zones and pursue their OSINT passions. We try to keep people curious about exploring web applications for bits of information or trying out new techniques to access important OSINT data.
We are an OSINT-learning catalyst.

Interview with Freddy M.
In this week's OSINTCurious interview, we spoke to Freddy M., a Senior Threat Intelligence analyst and experienced intelligence expert on the steps involved in producing intelligence. Freddy walks us through his intelligence architecture map, which is a very detailed visual representation of all the steps involved. Freddy's intelligence architecture map can be found here. Join us on our OSINTCurious Discord. Reach out to Freddy on Discord. His name is Furdy. For more #OSINT, follow us on Twitter.

Livestream with Nicole Beckwith
This week, Micah Hoffman, Christina Lekati, John TerBush, and Josh Huff talked with Nicole Beckwith (https://twitter.com/NicoleBeckwith) about mental health in OSINT investigations. This conversation was filled with practical advice and tips that you can apply before, during and after an investigation. We talked about the Honeycomb effect and about preparing your investigative workspace by creating as few mental anchors as possible in order to have a clear separation between investigating and the rest of your everyday life and activities. We analyzed the H.A.L.T. technique, which refers to checking whether you are Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired before or during an investigation, and making sure that you take care of those needs. We also talked about listening to your body to recognize signs of tension during an investigation and taking a step back when you recognize these signs by applying the 5-4-3-2-1 grounding method: focusing on 5 things that you see, 4 things that you feel, 3 things that you hear, 2 things that you smell and 1 thing that you taste- preferably lemon water. We finished our conversation by discussing the flip side of the coin- getting into your target's mind, establishing their baseline and finding their motives.
