Rosa Carrillo leads our discussion on the Exploring the socio in sociotechnical systems.

After a brief introduction to the topic and sharing of relevant research, the floor will be open for group conversation. We invite ALL to share their thoughts, and will openly embrace - actually encourage - different perspectives. We really want to hear from all, from those who can share measurable, scientific concepts, those who have knowledge gained from experience, and those who intend to learn and understand more.

Resources shared during the session by our members:

Eric Labancz - thank you!

Jim Marinus - Thank you! Topic idea for another next time and a quote for the group to reflect on 😀

Ironically, efforts to communicate more can result in knowing less. Rules that guarantee wide distribution of information can increase the amount to the point that a lot is not read. Transaction systems, designed to promote knowing, can also be a source of structural secrecy, concealing even as they reveal.
