  • Listened to [[General Intellect Unit 038 - The Viable System Model]]. Brilliant. Great overview of VSM (for a total newbie such as myself). Some tidbits:

    • Jon Walker who writes The VSM Guide was applying VSM to coops in the UK in the 80s (including [[Suma]])
    • In VSM management becomes a function of the overall system, not an individual role attainable only by those with a class privelege.
    • We should think of VSM as an explicitly socialist technology.
  • Very happy to have stumbled on the [[General Intellect Unit]] podcast. "Examining the intersection of Technology, (Left) Politics, and Philosophy". Found it just by a random search for 'Viable System Model podcast'.

15:28 depressing and empowering

i take solace in the fact that i can choose to kill myself at any moment. making the conscious decision not to do so means that i still have reason to live and motivation to work. i didn't choose to be born but i'm choosing to be alive.

17:06 debugging is learning

valuable because its just focused learning! if we empower others by forcing them to work thorugh their codebase without finding these bugs, we'll be able to help them in the saem way i remember having a great experience with the bisecting haskell tool to find bugs in code based on how functions were executed; great experience. wondering how we can generalize this experience and bring it to other progrmming languages; the generalization of these efforts, even if it means the tools are a bit less powerful, seems incredibly valuable -- and possible thanks to tools like the lang server protocol
