Hi, I got this from the ASC list:

It is my sad duty to share the news that Stafford Beer died August 23 in Toronto, Canada. He had been ill for several months but up to a short time ago had been expected to recover. Stafford was not only one of the great thinkers in cybernetics, but also one of the great doers. His work on effective organizations dates frombefore World War II and he has had great influence both within and outside of the field of cybernetics and systems. From the first time I met Stafford in the mid-eighties, I was impressed with his enthusiasm, warmth and irreverence, as well as his passion for his work. His
passing is a great loss for our field–but he has left behind enduring gifts in the form of his written work, and the results of his Viable
Systems interventions in real world organizations.

Allenna will be sending a note out to the membership when she feels ready. In the meantime, we will update you with any information we receive including memorial service arrangements.

In sadness,
Kevin Kreitman
Vice President, American Society for Cybernetics

Whither blogs?.

Where are weblogs going? How will they adapt to the workplace?

  1. Blogging platforms are quickly growing smarter.
  2. Blogspace is joining the infrastructure.
  3. Community tools are improving too.
  4. Knowledge extraction is coming.
  5. Blogs compete with MS Word and email as a writing tool.
  6. Blogs of other content.
  7. Secure blogs.
  8. Mobile blogging.

E-Logs and P-Logs. I think that Education Blogs should be called E-Logs and Political Blogs should be called P-Logs. More on this later.

Open Source Radio Handbook. Scott of the Fuzzy Group is releasing his Radio documentation as an open source book, since O’Reilly used only a fraction of it in the Radio chapter of the upcoming Essential Blogging:

As the author of the O’Reilly Essential Blogging chapters on Radio, I clearly have a commercial interest in Radio. You’d think that I’d want people to just buy the Essential Blogging book and NOT give content about Radio for free. You’d think that but you’d be wrong. I really want to see Radio do well along with great people like Jake and Lawrence. And more documentation is pretty much always a frothy good thing for products.

For more info, see Scott’s story on the subject. [via Don W Strickland: RadioFAQ] [Radio Free Blogistan] Radio Free Blogistan

If any body actually reads this weblog. I would be quite interested in how I could use blogs (k-logs) to make an impact on a leadership class that I will be teaching at St. Mary’s College. One that should promote the self reflection that is needed for my course. Thoughts?
