    [[{"pluginType":"highlight","index":"1","source":{"text":"survived","context":"The Media Lab has survived 30 years without losing its relevance or its passion when most research labs that focus on a discipline have difficulty retaining relevance for so long. Why? I think it’s because our focus is on a way of thinking and doing rather than on a field of study or a particular language. I believe the key is a focus on developing a better system of design and a better theory of deployment and impact.","ancestorHash":"9ad9ac39f150ba59b982ae347bc6b97274159ce9","endContainerPath":"[data-hash=\"1029155731\"]>span;0","endOffset":"26","startContainerPath":"[data-hash=\"1029155731\"]>span;0","startOffset":"18","sourcePub":"56944998095d603800fde333","sourceVersion":"12","index":1,"_id":"56a585ebf8086f380002db7c","label":"survived"}}]] Survived or thrived?

    [[{"pluginType":"highlight","index":"2","source":{"text":"represent","context":"Today, many designers work for companies or governments developing products and systems focused primarily on making sure that society works efficiently. However, the scope of these efforts are not designed to include–nor are they designed to care about–systems beyond our corporate or governmental needs. We’re moving into an era where the system boundaries are not as defined. These underrepresented systems, such as the microbial system and the environment, have suffered and are still represent significant challenges for designers. While these systems are self-adaptive, complex systems, our unintended effects on them will most likely cause unintended negative consequences for us.","ancestorHash":"7a4a718aa3c876107e9cdc14fe57d207f9b4ab20","endContainerPath":"[data-hash=\"452053012\"]>span;0","endOffset":"497","startContainerPath":"[data-hash=\"452053012\"]>span;0","startOffset":"488","sourcePub":"56944998095d603800fde333","sourceVersion":"12","index":2,"_id":"56a5843cf8086f380002db7a","label":"represent"}}]] Represent or present?

But it is also a warning: cybernetics became fragmented through over formalization and “disciplinarification.” As Stewart Brand recently reflected, cybernetics became more and more dense and academic, and as it matured it was “bored to death.” Perhaps we can design something that is both rigorous enough, engaging enough, and antidisciplinary enough not only to survive, but to thrive.","ancestorHash":"d582659eab2f0b11dca45a106a05c342b1d358d7","endContainerPath":"[data-hash=\"2018236136\"]>span:nth-of-type(3);0","endOffset":"387","startContainerPath":"[data-hash=\"2018236136\"]>span:nth-of-type(3);0","startOffset":"291","sourcePub":"56944998095d603800fde333","sourceVersion":"12","index":1,"_id":"56a581f3f8086f380002db77","label":"cyberneti"}}]] In fact, Cycbernetis became a discipline. It produced some good aswers to broad questions, but then it became about those answers, rather than about the orginal questions.
