iSIC: information through music

I found this very intriguing:

iSIC is short for information music. It is a unique research project
which explores the use of musical rules as a way to convey
information. iSIC is a monitoring system, sort of a baby sitter for
big complex systems. The complex system could be a large network, a
server farm or a nuclear facility. iSIC lets operators mind the
activities of systems through precisely mapped sounds which play
pleasantly in the background. To achieve this the sounds are expressed
as a musical paradigm.

Decision Trees (was Report Back from IxDG NYC Face-2-Face)

<Ben>My favourite management consultant, Gerry Robinson, writes about this

did for the BBC). He calls it "decision tree", and espouses it as the
the ideal way to proceed dynamically through a complex problem, focussed
on a goal, and avoiding getting bogged down on too much detail at
I did quite a bit of work on the idea of decision trees to underpin IxD a
few months back and they suffer certain quite fundamental problems.
