Cosmos + Taxis now listed on Complexity Explorer

We are pleased to announce that C+T is now listed on Santa Fe Institute’s Complexity Explorer, the preeminent curated open access site for complexity studies of a technical and non-technical nature. Whether you want to get some basic understanding of complexity in its many guises or you are looking to refresh your extant knowledge, there is no finer place to go. And the beauty is that much on offer is free and is run by top-notch complexity theorists, the prime mover being the very excellent Melanie Mitchell.


James Gardner March: I know who I am

H/T Brendan Markey-Towler for bringing this obituary to my attention.

His seminal book, Organizations, written jointly with Herbert A. Simon in 1958 . . . In an October 3 memoriam published in Le Monde Thierry Weil asserts that many believe March should have shared the 1978 Nobel Prize for Economics with Herbert Simon for the theories of limited rationality and organizations they had developed together . . . The line from Don Quixote, ”I know who I am,” became his personal motto and oft-quoted advice.
