Complexity, Linked

Susan Crawford has a wonderful, long-plane-flight inspired post
about two books coming together.  “So, add the two together: 
what’s the best way to govern a complex network that is
self-organizing, emergent, subject to power laws, and living on its
own?  The Santa Fe [Institute] founders would say, ‘Watch it with
care, but don’t pretend that you can predict its course or channel its
development.'”  This reminds me of the Berkman Center on its best
days, too (though I’m not sure the power law thing applies exactly).
