Generative Systems

So, once in a while, the Intertube spits out something so awesome that it reminds me of why people branded it the "Information Superhighway" when it was new, instead of branding it the "Porn and LOST spoilers Superhighway" (which is really probably a more apt description). Today's evidence that the internet is more than just cat macros and cult apologists:'s awesome lecture by Will Wright and Brian Eno on generative systems. This totally rocks- it bounces from music, to technology, to music technology, to basically everything in the physical universe. Here it is, embedded, all 1.5 hours of pure academic glory, for you lazy shlubs to bask in instead of leveling up your Night Elf Mohawks.
