Top Ideas

  • Data Feminism
  • Axelrod
  • Piaget
  • Coding Freedom

Lessons from 2019 Instantiation

  • Deciding on book/s needs to happen earlier so that we can get the word out and folks can plan
  • Intersecting reading choices and discussion leaders earlier would also be helpful

Structural Ideas from Post-Summer 2019

  • Part of a broader "Samba school" program that CDSC might operate as over each summer?
  • What is the periodicity of the STC? 3 years? 4 years?

Reading Ideas From 2019 Planning

  • Axelrod's wikipedia:The Evolution of Cooperation. A more controversial suggestion would be Kropotkin's wikipedia:Mutual Aid: A Factor of Evolutionmako
  • Claude Shannon (or at least someone else's summary of information theory) Aaronshaw (talk) 16:38, 7 May 2019 (EDT)
  • Hayek (on information) Aaronshaw (talk) 16:39, 7 May 2019 (EDT)
  • If we want to read something ecological I would pick "organizations evolving" by Reuf and Aldrich. It may be a bit too high level and its kind of a textbook. I'd also be excited to do Marx, Weber, Durkheim. Another idea for a social theory book is "Constructing Social Theories" by Stinchcomb. Groceryheist (talk) 18:24, 5 June 2019 (EDT)

Reading Ideas From Post-Summer 2019

  • Castells (or, perhaps, Phil Howard on Castells, with some auxiliary reading) Kaylea (talk) 15:52, 13 November 2019 (EST)
  • Exit, Voice, and Loyalty (Hirschmann) Kaylea (talk) 15:52, 13 November 2019 (EST)
  • The Sciences of the Artificial, HA Simon. "best known for concepts of bounded rationality and satisficing" Kaylea (talk) 15:48, 8 January 2020 (EST)
  • Piaget (or, someone covering Piaget) in keeping with last year's pattern of having a reading about education Kaylea (talk) 15:52, 13 November 2019 (EST) Mako suggests the Piaget Primer Kaylea (talk)
  • Gabrielle Tard (Mako mentioned in orgcomm class)
