I loved a lot of this My felt rating was at a 4 moving to 5 until I hit the last third which is a collection of many 6 page articles originally published in Christian Science Monitor With a few exceptions these pieces were oversimplified or over condensed to the point where despite being enjoyable they almost approached pseudo science in their tone the effort to make complexity digestible is probably a worthy goal but it cannot avoid being somewhat oxymoronic But then I got to the last piece written by Krakauer It is one of the most accessible and clear characterizations of what a complexity literate approach to solutions design looks like in contrast to standard designengineering paradigms It s brilliant More people looking to solve wicked problems need the kind of understanding provided in this piece in particular the final call for approaches that move desired outcomes into a space of desirable albeit never optimal performance p 355

Worlds Hidden in Plain Sight Free read ´ 106 Over the last three decades the Santa Fe Institute and its network of researchers have been pursuing a revolution in science Ignoring the boundaries of disciplines and schools and searching for novel fundamental ideas theories and practices this international community integrates t. On the topic of complexity I recently finished World Hidden in Plain Sight a collection of essays and papers on complexityI would give certain essays in the is book two or three stars and others four or five As someone who has read a lot on the topic I still found uite a few new insights and a deeper exploration of concepts like ergodicityI would highly recommend about half of this book specifically chapters 168 and 9 19 are fantastic Many of the early chapters struggle to articulate the ideas coherently and the later chapters restate them without saying much new If you want the really short version Ch 9 13 15 and 17 were outstandingMy favorite new idea was the notion of a response threshold Neurons and individuals can respond to various stimuli Responses are based on stimulus thresholds stimuli below some threshold result in no response while stimuli above a threshold can elicit a reaction kind of like Wiley Coyote Once generated the action potential propagates at full intensityIndividuals do not respond to a stimulus until it is stronger than some minimum threshold One dirty dish won t get me to do the dishes but beyond some point where they stack up and start to look gross I ll do all of them The response threshold is a fundamental organizing property of complex systems ranging from neurons and individualsIt made me think about why division of labor naturally arises in confounders or between companies If I see something poorly written I can t help but start fixing it whereas poor visual design doesn t really bother me As a result I tend to work on the writing aspect of projects and not the design sideThinking about your own and colleagues response thresholds seems a helpful way to assign out duties
