Our series on Cybernetics and Labor continues this week as we dive into the beginning of Project Cybersyn and Stafford Beer’s arrival in Chile. We discuss Beer’s invitation from the government of Salvador Allende, his work with prominent government officials, and the incredible speed with which his project was assembled. We also begin breaking down Beer’s concept of the Viable Systems Model as applied to a socialist government. In our next episode, we will discuss the planned deployment and testing of the project in the final months of Allende’s time in power before the CIA-backed coup brought everything crashing to a halt.
