Innovation, Complex Systems and Computation: Technological Space and Speculations on the Future
I have a new article, coauthored with Euel Elliott, Professor of Public Policy and Political Economy and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education in the School of Economics, Political and Policy Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas, in Studies in Emergent Order titled "Innovation, Complex Systems and Computation: Technological Space and Speculations on the Future". In it we investigate technology as a spontaneous order, discussing what happens when the technological order overlaps with the catallaxy. Further, we discuss the potential of technological innovation given the Internet. The Internet is yet another kind of spontaneous order network, and its overlaps with the economy and technological innovation (not to mention other spontaneous order, like the arts and literature) is having an effect on these areas that we are only beginning to feel and recognize.
