Why I started this newsletter
And why in particular I started it now.
Once upon a time, I was a game theorist. That got me a PhD in mathematics, and a couple years as a postdoctoral/research fellow in public policy, all at Harvard.
I left academia. For the past 40+ years, I’ve analyzed, consulted to and participated in the technology business sector. I’ve written about it a lot, technology details and more general strategy alike.
Then the Russia-Ukraine War broke out. Viewing it through a game-theoretic lens revealed points most observers overlook. (See the second and fourth posts.) So I rushed to start a publication that might help other people sharpen their views too.
Soon I realized: Almost all my work is influenced by game theory.
I want to share what I’ve learned.
