    1. The herbivore-daisy relationship is an example of a predator-prey relationship, and these relationships are known to oscillate in population quite a bit
      • for: predator / prey oscillation

      • paraphrase

        • As the predator eat a lot of the prey,
          • they increase in number while
          • the prey numbers go down.
        • Then when there are not enough prey to feed all the predators,
          • the predator number goes down too.
        • With less predators
          • the prey numbers go up.
        • As prey numbers goes up,
          • predator numbers can go up again.
      • These population dynamics are expressed in the Lotka-Volterra equations
        • What is curious here is that the oscillation in population doesn’t translate into more oscillation of the climate,
        • instead it can translate into more stability of the climate

    1. They didn't block new features for shits and giggles, though – the method to this madness was rent-extraction. The iron-clad rule of the Bell System was that anything that improved on the basic service had to have a price-tag attached. Every phone "feature" was a recurring source of monthly revenue for the phone company – even the phone itself, which you couldn't buy, and had to rent, month after month, year after year, until you'd paid for it hundreds of times over. This is an early and important example of "predatory inclusion": the monopoly carriers delivered universal service to all of us, but that was a prelude to an ugly, parasitic, rent-seeking way of doing business:

      Predatory inclusion is a form of rent-seeking in which one preys on customers using monopoly power to extract excessive value for small add-on services.

    1. For example, the notion of the workplace as a family is a refrain in offices but it is most explicit for nannies.

      Too often corporations use the idea that the workplace is a "family", but when times get tough, we don't abandon our families the same way that corporations will summarily fire their employees to try to survive themselves without any real thought about their supposed "family members".
