    Episode 10 - Modeling Complexity with Cynefin

    James O'Brien takes some time out of his day to discuss Cynefin, a model for understanding and acting upon complexity as well as anti-patterns in communication.

    Meta analytical thinking and communication are so fundamentally important to automating processes (creating software) that it was nice to get the chance to discuss them.
