Re: <nettime> Whatever Happened to Cybernetics?


I've documented that cybernetics was a significant influence in the
development of the vision and engineering design for the Internet as
negative feedback is signficant as the basis for the research that
made it possible to create the Internet.

See for example:

http://www.columbia.edu/~rh120/other/misc/lick101.doc
The Information Processing Techniques Office
                  and the Birth of the Internet
                      A Study in Governance


I have some other papers about the development of tcp/ip if anyone is
interested.

best wishes
