Math Reality Rises Up and Bites You

Here is a talk about how the bloodless world of math has crept into the real world and now has risen up and is biting us, not just biting, gashing, chomping, and devouring use.

From a TED talk in July 2011...

The bit around 09:00 in the video where he talks about "the physics of culture" and worries about those algorithms crashing is really, really scary.

The future belongs to the algorithms... and we are hanging on tight hoping we are lost as the future races away.
