The discussion of complex increases in complexity….

Back in October, I wrote Is Your Software Complex.  This has prompted a number of discussions in multiple venues, so it seems a good idea to look at the term “Complex” in a bit more detail.

Like many words, it has a number of distinct meanings, and when one is not clear which meaning is intended, then confusion (and related problems) is sure to occur.

Roger Sessions has been writing about one meaning of complexity for about a decade. His book Simple Architectures for Complex Enterprises created an entire field of study. Overly simplifying [and with apologies to Roger], complexity in this context is a mathematical model based on the number of nodes and interconnects between the nodes.

Dave Snowden formulated the Cynefin Framework nearly 20 years ago which categorizes systems into one of four categories: Simple, Complicated, Complex and Chaotic. Once again oversimplifying, Complex is characterized by “The complex domain represents the “unknown unknowns”. Cause and effect can only be deduced in retrospect. There are no right answers“.

Clearly, these are really different topics that simply happen to share an English word. At the same time there are interesting relationships.  Calculating the Complexity [Sessions] of a Complex [Snowden] system is unlikely to be possible, simply because of the unknowns.  Complicated or Simple [Snowden] systems are well defined, but there is not necessarily a correspondence to the resultant Complexity [Sessions].  So one can have a Complicated [Snowden] System with moderate to low complexity [Sessions], and have a Simple [Snowden] System with very high complexity [Sessions].

One approach to dealing with this is to use Cynfin/Snowden when talking about “problems” (something to be addressed) and Sessions when talking about “solutions” (the concrete resulting system).  As one starts to analyze a problem, there are sure to be “unknown unknowns”.  By the time a system has been “completed” everything about the system (at least for a point in time) is defined – and one can make the appropriate measurements and calculations necessary to evaluate the complexity.

    There was more infiltration of private institutions with the doctor and random clones. Like “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space,” this episode showed differing perspectives from different people. This time, it was Mulder and Scully and their experiences after killing a “vampire.” They actually remember quite similar events, but the subtle differences in their behavior and appearances make the episode one of the most fun. In terms of weirdness, the Flukeman certainly ranks up there. The science in science fiction amounted to making the connection to Chernobyl which while ludicrous, actually brought up an interesting idea. The episode had an unclean feeling with Mulder crawling around the New Jersey sewer system that made it disturbing and fun to watch. No list would be complete without the episode that started it all. It introduced the greatest team in television history (I’m looking at you Moonlighting fans!), alien abductions, and the government conspiracy. Chernobyl Episode 5 watch online. In this way one can better understand logic of the currency pair movement at Forex market. Consequently, this approach helps us to trace out a general pattern of opening and closing of transactions at Forex. CHANGES in FOREX MARKET. Previously Forex was a chaotic market. B. Williams tried to find elements of a system, making use of the theory of chaos. At present the system “tries to disguise its goals and plans” with the help of a superficially chaotic character of movements in this market. As regards Consortium, the PRINCIPAL CONCLUSION that a trader must make after reading this chapter is the following. This market has ceased to be spontaneous. Now it is organized and controllable. At present volumes of transactions, opened by traders, have ceased being of great influence. Somebody’s interest “to push” a currency towards this or that direction has become much more important. Often this interest aims at usurping an N- transaction volume and a number of traders’ orders. The first two episodes of Chernobyl play out like a horror movie, with a hauntingly effective score to augment the slow reveals of the compounding disaster, as geiger counters begin humming like a cacophony of summer cicadas. The human toll is immense and visceral; a man holds open a door with his hip to help his comrades try and cool the exploded core (which cannot actually be done), and his hip disintegrates. Besides the opening scene and the closing episode, Chernobyl plays out in a linear narrative that makes you feel trapped inside a nightmare. There is a cloud of death that no one can see, except that we can see its effects on the faces of those who encounter it as their skin sloughs off. Every additional person conscripted to try and stop the meltdown from spreading — and potentially killing millions across Europe — is the face of someone you know will die probably soon and horribly.

    Here we are again on a Friday! First of all, I had major issues with getting images on this post. Every time I’d hit return, everything above would disappear. And after puzzling over this for a while, I just decided to work with it the way it is. Yesterday I went to the Girls State Track Meet in Des Moines. Middle Sister qualified in the 3000, so it was exciting to watch her compete with some great runners. It was a beautiful day, but I am glad Middle Sister ran in the morning since temps in the afternoon were over 90 degrees. We haven’t seen weather like that since last summer! 1. RIKILIO Pajama Set- I used to wear pajamas every night. I’ve moved to the type of person who wears their exercise clothes to bed so I will feel more obligated to get up and work out when my alarm goes off (this trick only works some of the time). If I were a pajama wearing person, I’d really like these. Chernobyl Episode 6 watch online.
