This series’ title is a half lie. Marketing, in other words. The series does cover complex adaptive systems (CAS), that much is true. But it doesn’t have any practical advice to give, quite to the contrary it is a set of abstractifications of CAS properties and concepts.

They say you don’t understand something if you can’t explain it, and that writing is proof of thinking. So this is me explaining something to me, one jump-off keyword at a time. I’ll write a separate series with practical examples, as soon as I feel wise enough. Don’t hold your breath.
