I am re-posting those here. Scroll down to access the HyperWarfare posts.

Too many people ask me about technical and business insights to give them all a decent, in-depth answer: this way I can refer them here for a lot of that, giving them at least a start on the topic (and as a freebie). Posts are automatically distributed to LinkedIn (where they disappear after 30 days) and to a few Twitter channels — for convenience. I do not offer these posts as e-Mail subscriptions. Of course, all sources are clearly marked and mentioned.
