Techdirt Podcast Episode 308: Getting Out Of Control

from the big-and-complex dept

Our lives are lived at the intersection of vast systems (economic, technological, and beyond) that are incredibly complex and often chaotic, and it’s hard to understand and embrace what author Neil Chilson’s new book, Getting Out Of Control, calls “the emergent mindset.” On this week’s episode, Neil joins us to discuss his book and why you can’t simply “control” complex systems.

I’m reading through the preview of the book right now. It’s really coming through that he used to work at the FTC under the Trump Administration, and that he now works at the Charles Koch Institute, and he’s railed against net neutrality quite frequently. Such an amazing guest! Is he a cryptocurrency and/or NFT shill, as well?

Accounting Errors

Accounting Errors Learn how to deal with them. Your account system is the key to concluding what is occurring in your business. It’s similarly dynamic to assessment return medication and different administration acquiescence arrearages. That is why picking up effects exactly is all-important. Unfortunately, whether you apply a cloud- based or desktop accounting software system, miscalculations can occur.
