If you’ve read The Complex Christ, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of Steven Johnson’s book ‘Emergence – the connected lives of ants, brains, cities and software‘. Turns out he has a blog, plus a new book launching in London this autumn.
The blog is well worth visiting if you’re interested in emergence and complexity; on it he links to this amazing video – screenshot shown – of the paths of FedEx’s planes landing at Memphis airport during a thunderstorm – watch them scatter when the storm hits! Like ants when you pour boiling water down their holes. Or shouldn’t I admit doing that as a kid? 😉
