It involves being able to read something about your opponent, based on his bet and raise times, whilst at the same time staying unreadable yourself.

Nice article, cleared up some things on why taking time is better in order to represent a weaker hand. However I don't get the last examples. Those players are already thinking one level ahead and interpret the tells as opposite to what they naturally mean : slow action is a monster, fast action is a bluff. So basically it's a leveling war from the start.
