  • John Day says:

    Could you send me a copy of your paper on the heuristics course? I would really like to read it, since I was in them. I dedicated my book to Heniz. Those courses and years of working with Maturana, Ashby, and Heinz had a profound affect on my thinking.

    Take care,
    John Day

    Where are you? Since I live in Korea, not in the States, I can’t see you nor regonise you.
