Marginal Revolution on the The phantom Tyler Cowen. Sounds a bit like the abstract OODA part of Phatic Communions Revised OODA.

Here is the only link to something related to Paris Hilton I will every make (it is really about marketing and networking).

TDAXP on Corporate Espionage One side effect of the blowback from the HP affair is that organization will get smarter about doing this sort of thing. I would see you will see hybrid enterprise consisting of Law Firms, and skilled intelligence folks. The doing it all through an outside law firm coordinated by the internal counsels gives legal cover. Also lots of money are at stake, so I see where corporate officers, accustomed to being told how smart they are will report to this.

  1. I’m not a fan of the IEEE article. Here is just one article, out of many:

    More stress and you reach the perfectly vigilant mode of an expert thinker, where you consider all alternatives before making a decision.

    Novices attempt to consider all alternatives. Experts use their training to instinctively focus on a very small number, and they consider those. Expertise is not a product of better logical decision making, but of better analogical decision making.

    The logical computational ability of humanity is very, very poor. I’m not surprised that an engineer would wish to reduce it to general-computational logical rules, but I would be scared to see that plan implemented.

  2. Excellent point Dan. I got to spend last night & early this morning on some weird IT related things. I did not do a breadth-first search of the possible things that could be going wrong. Instead, I made a quick survey of what was going on and drilled down quickly as to what I thought was needed. This would be the Boyd/OODA fingertip feel, correct?
