FUN WITH SOCIAL MAPPING
The devil, as we know, is in the details. And when you scrutinze the details to the nth degree, all hell breaks loose.

Well, not really. But when you're talking social/organizational mapping, it sure can seem that way.

This is pretty heady stuff, and I admit a good chunk of it is over my head. But quite thought-provoking. I appreciate the Vonnegut references too; I think the entire premise can be summarized in the sentence, "Granfalloons are what you see in the annual report and the business plan; the karass is what actually happens on the ground, when things are going well." (Note the qualifier, "when things are going well".)
