My main reason for writing these weekend reflection posts is to provide you with links of important insights I came across during the week while browsing the blogosphere. Some people call this short link blogging — often way fewer than 140 characters (a bit similar to Twitter).

In case you missed the last couple of weeks’ best links for the week:

Very useful links: Insight versus hindsight for week 23.
Very useful links: George Soros to US Homeland Security for week 24.
