The following e-mail has been received from the Cybernetics Discussion Group on behalf of Stuart Umpleby and will be of particular interest to all readers of Kybernetes:
Nagib Callaos (President of the IIIS – www.iiis.org/iiis) has videotaped a one-day tutorial that I gave at the 2006 Conference in Orlando, FL. Today I received a shipment. Each plastic package, about the size of a book, contains five disks. There are four 1.5h lectures and one disk with exercises and PPT slides. You can see some of this material at: www.gwu.edu/, umpleby/cybernetics/.
I shall send to each member of the American Society for Cybernetics (ASC) one of these collections and also a DVD of the conversation with George Soros on reflexivity and fallibility, which was held at George Washington University in May 2006. (www.gwu.edu/rpsol/lectures/2006%20Lecture%20Soros.htm and www.gwu.edu/rpsol/lectures/2006%20Lecture%20Umpleby%20.htm).
I hope you will find this material helpful in explaining cybernetics to colleagues and students. Needless to say, I welcome comments and suggestions.
If you are not currently a member of the ASC, you may want to join (www.asc-cybernetics. org) in order to receive these materials.
For a short (25min) slideshow on the history and development of cybernetics see www.gwu.edu/,asc/slideshow/cybernetics_web/slideshow.html
