Three lessons for the industrial Internet

Mac Slocum, Dec 19, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

There are some really good concepts in this post outlining three major design principles informing (and leading to) the success of the internet, drawn from a presentation buy Tim O'Reilly:

  • Simplicity: “Standardize as little as possible, but as much as is needed so the system is able to evolve,” O’Reilly said.
  • Generativity “Create an architecture of participation that leads to unexpected innovations and discoveries, and builds a new ecosystem of companies that add value to the network,”
  • Robustness: Build “the ability to tolerate failure and degrade gracefully rather than catastrophically,” O’Reilly said.
