Ah the feedback loop …

2012/12/21

And modelers rarely if ever consider the feedback loop and the ramifications of their predatory models on our culture.

This does not happen with modelers only. It happens with everyone that has a “good idea” and rushes it forward without really thinking whether it will work or not, and how long afterwards we are going to see how what was introduced interferes with what was already there, fine tuned and working. And that is why I read about cybernetics; not because it is less obscure, or more useful than people think, but because it always reminds me of the feedback loop.
