I guess "just in time" may mean many different things. If it means I'm dependant on the global supply network to work seamlessly if I want to have food on my table today, then it's dangerous, as those who have thought about a worldwide simultaneous flu pandemic (yes, I know "pan" means "whole world", but just wanted to insist a bit) think would be.
I like the "controlled by confusion" concept. Information does have negative feedback mechanisms because it can't possibly be "instant". I'll try to keep it in mind. Thanks.
