  • Listened to General Intellect Unit 038 - The Viable System Model. Brilliant. Great overview of VSM (for a total newbie such as myself). Some tidbits:
    • Jon Walker who writes The VSM Guide was applying VSM to coops in the UK in the 80s (including Suma)
    • In VSM management becomes a function of the overall system, not an individual role attainable only by those with a class privelege.
    • We should think of VSM as an explicitly socialist technology.
  • Very happy to have stumbled on the General Intellect Unitpodcast. "Examining the intersection of Technology, (Left) Politics, and Philosophy". Found it just by a random search for 'Viable System Model podcast'.
