Andrew Taylor Tracking  outcomes  in  complex  systems  is  almost   impossible.   Michaela  Hynie  Try  it.  If  its  stupid  you  can  stop.   Cathy  Brothers   To summarize - dig where the ground is soft, donʼt water the rocks, and when digging for potatoes, itʼs best to dig where the potatoes are.# Kerry Daly
