Systems Design Isn't About Software

With the invention of publishing, ancient engineers became modern engineers. That's because with publishing, engineers learned to specialize. Leonardo da Vinci was the last of the ancient engineers because he never published any of his work. He was also the last of the generalists.

Well, it's high time ancient designers became modern ones. By generalizing and by abstracting. By realizing their power. By realizing they're about designing complex systems and not economic systems or physical systems or software systems or political systems.

It's about ALL of them, and none of them. Design is about systems period.

If you're an analytic-synthetic, please get in touch with me so we can talk. So you can understand what you can do.
