Fail Early Fail Often

Here are the prezi slides from a guest lecture I gave on the Fail Early Fail Often philosophy [#fefo], as well as the methodology of Fast, Inexpensive, Simple, Tiny [#fist].

And below are some related gifs I made for the occasion:

Space just got reframed

So, this happened today, and space will never be the same again. This simple image has vastly bigger importance than the increased payload and reduced cost of the Falcon. And who else to accomplish this but Elon Musk – space flaneur. Suddenly, space is not an extension of the bureaucratic state machine anymore, instead it has been reframed into a place where this is possible:

Distributed swarms, OODA loops, and stigmergy

This is a third paper in a cycle on distributed swarms, OODA loops and stigmergy co-authored with a PhD student of mine. The paper is titled Distributed Swarming and Stigmergic Effects on ISIS Networks: OODA Loop Model, and was published in the Journal of Media and Information Warfare. This is probably the densest and most interesting paper in the series, as we analyse information warfare waged by distributed swarms in the context of network-centric warfare theory, stigmergic adaptation, and John Boyd’s work on the OODA loop concept. For me the most interesting elements of the paper involve our discussion of Von Moltke’s concept of auftragstactic in the context of maneuver warfare in the information domain.
