           This is a rather long read, but an important one. The mental models series from Farnham Street is a must-read for those wanting to understand how we make sense of our world. The concept of the “butterfly effect” is not well known except in the most limited way and is central to understanding the the world we live in.

          Sometimes you find important ideas in unexpected places. I found this essay on the Facebook page of the Dialog Group, an ad agency in Texas that works with the Santa Fe Institute.  It builds on the work of Professor Lauren Ancel Meyers of the University of Texas and the Santa Fe Institute. This is a must-read for anyone interested in how ideas spread. Featured images are from Story People by Brian Andreas.
