Cory Doctorow: Will Wright at PC Forum 2003

Cory Doctorow, notes from Will Wright’s talk: “System dynamics spun out of the idea of daisy chaining simple electronic components to make complex devices […] The predictions of system dynamics didn’t account for chaos theory and so small errors led to bad conclusions […] After system dynamics came cellular automata. I’ve spent a good chunk of my life studying these. This is the basis of SimCity – 3D cellular automata modelling crime, pollution, etc. This is married to system dynamics used to set macro-policies.”
