Emergent patterns in nature and society

Geoffrey West: The surprising math of cities and corporations | Video

TED video on the scaling laws of cities by Geoffrey West, distinguished professor at Santa Fe Institute. Inspiring words on entropy and how super-linearity may drive urban systems towards unexpected collapse. Counter-intuitive and catchy. Another good reason to look at regime shifts in cities. What can we learn from scaling and how can we apply networks in a creative and useful way?
