But imitation of other procedures -- even with random error -- will only very rarely invent such types where they have never existed. 2. Patterns of Interaction Thus far we have focused on the mechanisms that create and destroy types in complex systems, and on principles associated with those mechanisms. But very often the events of interest within a system arise from the interactions of its components. Trades occur when buyer meets seller. New animals are created when a male and female breed. Religious communities grow as adherents proselytize the uninitiated.

The comparative strengths of implicit versus explicit evaluation will be at issue in our discussion below of criteria used in assessing community information systems. Multiple Adaptive Processes Finally, it bears mentioning that complex systems can often have multiple adaptive processes. This gives rise to another whole cluster of principles that center on the relative speeds of the adaptive processes. In most situations labeled coadaptation the processes are presumed to be acting at roughly comparable rates.

In the latter case it might go to selected individuals instead, even to a proper subset of "DL674". But some members of the list might not see it, or might see it later -- a difference in activation. " In many organizations, processes among non-members bring DL names into spoken currency, as shorthand for the groups or purposes associated with them. The creation of a DL thus appears as an opportunity to publish a newly coined collective noun and insert it into the community's discourse.
