On September 15, four billion [ed: 4,000,000,000!] people around the world will be focussed on the opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games here in Sydney, climaxed when the fire ignites in the cauldron! 

And now it comes into focus, four billion thinking as one - focussed minds - something positive like peace - after all there is the prophesy of a thousands years of peace... and maybe we have to ask for it.

A wonderful story I heard was that Sir Winston Churchill organised the people of England to all focus on peace at 9.00 o'clock every evening. When Hitler heard this he resigned to failure. I liked that story. 

On the other hand, if four billion people focussed on peace, that's a formidable force [ed: see Luke] . In short we about to be swarmed on!

Speaking of the swarm I neatly segue to our 'official' first paper and a first published (I believe_you saw it here first folks) Vlad's "Swarm-like Dynamics and Their Use In Organisation and Management". This study reveals their use in the practice of management

To those interested in the University of Western Sydney Masters Program "Complexity, Chaos and Creativity", check Vlad's "Swarm Dynamics" excellent link references... so we've got you covered. They are hot.

SWARM DYNAMICS

 Organizational dynamics at the edge of chaos
. . .   . . . . The interest in the mystery of the swarm dynamics and particularly of stigmergic assemblies, that is assemblies in which individuals communicate mostly indirectly - through the environment they share, exponentially grows in our days. The challenge is to explore ways of applying the swarm- and stigmergy-based approaches for creating new ways of dealing with organizational dynamics at the edge of chaos.
