"I have seen three such blogs, always-on virtual whiteboards that have sped development and kept the status of projects clearer than they'd been before. They don't attempt to capture an organization's mood." [via lcom@]

At the Edge of Chaos

"Kauffman (1995) has observed that evolution happens best at the edge of chaos. If the evolutionary landscape is too ordered (a 'Stalinist regime') then a stagnant stability is reached and interesting change does not occur. If it is too chaotic, no high peaks of fitness are ever reached and the system slips into a state of flux." (Dron, 2002)
