Embracing error, wicked problems & side effects in Cybernetics

“Cybernetics offers us much more than control, feedback and communication! In this talk, presented at the Dupont Circle Summit, 2013, I introduce other concepts central to cybernetic thinking, pointing to both their broad range and how we can treat them as bringing benefit. The ideas include the unavoidability of error; insoluble (wicked) problems; undecidable propositions; side effects; and the value of being good enough.
There are some small glitches. Since they are consistent with the message, I have not edited them out.”
