As I just posted today about resilience in terms of the strategic applications of communities and networks (the people kind), it was a lovely bit of kismet that today’s OLDaily had a link that again brings this idea to the fore.
Infrastructure Resilience ~ Stephen’s Web.
One thing that Stephen brings up is the importance of redundancy for resilience and how that may be counter to efficiency, the beast that seems to rule everything these days. The key is looking at the bigger, longer term context.
The direct link to the article he is referencing is Infrastructure Resilience, from Valdis Krebs.
