    Very interesting article SS, thanks for sharing it. Has anyone read The Black swan? I browsed through it briefly at a book store last year and it seemed very interesting but forgot about it completely after that.

    Great post SS. That&#39;s got a 2010 copyright on it and it&#39;s identified as a "draft version." I presume it&#39;s from a forthcoming work? If so, do you have its title and expected release date?

    Very interesting--I like the idea that we, as organisms, actually need randomness and variability. Seems we have much to unlearn from the last few decades of CW.
