The Road to Turkdom

December 20, 2014 - 07:43 -- Admin

It should be clear to everyone that the economic and political system that replaced feudal agriculture is starting to fall apart.  

It's also pretty clear we need a new system, one that can operate at a global scale and fully embrace the potential of new technologies without turning us all into slaves (or killing us).

OODA Loops and Innovation

John Boyd is famous in large part for showing how decision making is critical to victory.

To do this he built the OODA loop.  The OODA describes how we make decisions:

  1. Observe.
  2. Orient.
  3. Decide.
  4. Act.

The OODA, when repeated quickly and accurately, allows any organism to quickly adapt to new and evolving circumstance.  

As you can guess, making great decisions are particularly critical in warfare.
