Fact or Fiction:
I'm was at InfoWarCon this week and learned that Winn intends to update his seminal book "Information Warfare" in 2019.  Now would be a good time to check out the original work.  InfoWarCon was the first large conference I spoke at over 23 years ago and where I predicted that “Information warfare is undoubtedly the warfare of the future."  InfoWarCon is now a small but magical event.  William Gibson noted that the "Future has already arrived, it's just not evenly distributed yet." I would describe InfoWarCon as the event where the future comes first. (Amazon Link)
