In this episode of Being Human, I speak with David Woods, a professor at Ohio State University who discovered and pioneered the concept of Graceful Extensibility.
As the opposite of brittleness, graceful extensibility is the ability of a system to extend its capacity to adapt when surprise events challenge its boundaries.
In this episode, we talk:
- Dealing with shock
- The need to stretch at the boundaries
- How all systems are fragile
- Staying alive to 'weak signals'
- How viability requires extensibility
