From The Sky We Look So Organized and Brave

My opening keynote for 7CTO’s annual members conference was a sprawling marathon touching on concepts of evolvability, fitness landscapes, Fisher’s fundamental theorem of natural selection, the Prussian state and its enduring influence on business, degeneracy, left-brain bias and Cynefin.

People seem to remember it fondly, but I think it was probably 4 or 5 talks crammed into one. Unfortunately, it wasn’t recorded, so we have only memories.
