“We shall have to stop thinking of technology as something invulnerable that is merely used by humans, and view it as part of a greater cybernetic ecology all around us. The key distinction in an environment is not between ‘natural’ and ‘artificial’, but between semantic and dynamic: intention and behaviour. Biology has already drawn these lines, and through us, it will integrate the inanimate with the animate in information systems, until we no longer see a pertinent difference between the two.”
Mark Burgess, In Search of Certainty: The Science of Our Information Infrastructure

“our perceptions of being ‘in control’ always have a lot to do with scale at we focus our attention – and, by implication, the information that is omitted. We sometimes think we are in control because we either don’t have or choose not to see the full picture.”
Mark Burgess, In Search of Certainty: The Science of Our Information Infrastructure

“Autonomous and voluntary behaviour.” These words, hewn from the discussion about avoiding conflicting interests, strike fear in the hearts of technologists. “Control and determinism” are the words they want to hear — those over-sold consorts of certainty.”
Mark Burgess, In Search of Certainty: The Science of Our Information Infrastructure
