The Coming Revolution In Intelligence Affairs (ISN)

I have long argued that intelligence, like virtually any discipline whose common currency is information, is undergoing a revolution.

Driven most obviously by the steady and substantial improvements in technology over the last 20 years, traditional models of intelligence have largely failed to keep up.

Beyond improvements in technology, however, I see the convergence of a number of trends that will fundamentally alter not only the way intelligence is done but could also change the common perception of who does it best.

The good people at ISN asked me to put all these thoughts into writing and you can see the results here.
