Ive been away for a while. Teaching High School and writing a novel doesn't leave much time for blogging. This is work. I will try to do better.
Some Entropy Law thoughts Ive had lately that I havent taken the time to write about:
* The wall street computer algorithm that went haywire a few weeks ago. High speed trading is tight-coupling with complex interactions. "Normal Accidents" are bound to increase in frequency. 10 and 20 years ago, when trading entropy was slower, there was less trouble. Cant get into all that now.
* The drought and its ecological aftershocks
* Social entropy and distrust of institutions
* The Dark Knight Rises
more posts soon.
