Hmm. In trying to understand what parts of a curriculum I need to expand my education into more scientific realms, I came across the IEEE’s Body of Kowledge for Software Engineering project.
It lead me to Bloom’s taxonomy of education which is fascinating. Apparently, it is based on a systems model of thinking which is founded in Cybernetics.

Apparently, cybernetics got started in the 40’s and included people like Margaret Mead and John Von Neumann. That guy really was busy. Hmm. Game Theory, Turing Machines, machine architecture, and cybernetics.

I can’t tell if Cybernetics is good old systems theory as I learned it in my college sociology class or something a little flakier from the website. Maybe the dictionary will help.
