Tell me your most controversial opinions about Black Swan / Black Elephant events, systemic resilience and disaster response.

@smari The guy behind them is an antiGMO crank who was a poor grasp of risk to begin with?

@smari Nassim Taleb is a very prominent figure in the "all scientists are monsanto shills" twittersphere, and likes to waffle about unknown risks when anyone tries to engage in good faith. He's the guy who coined the meme of "Black Swans" AFAIK

@cathal ah. While I do have that book and didn't like it much, I always associate the idea with some other people. But yes. That Taleb is a fool is largely uncontroversial.
