must read more (widely)

Posted by Jon Crowcroft

So lunchtime conversation yesterday, two books came up (actually some others, but they triggered my memory of these two, which are a bit left field, hence I will mention them here)

1. Greg Bateson's extraordinary Steps to an Ecology of mind
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steps_to_an_Ecology_of_Mind
which certainly made me think:)

2. George Lakoff's wacky, but seminar Women, Fire and Dangerous Things
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Lakoff
which is oft-times cited as the origin of OO-thinking (I think it influenced the Smalltalk folks)

so there:)
