      Yes, definitely, I do like the Cybersyn control room, too. A pity that it was dismantled when the military took over. There are very few pictures of it around. The stunning thing is the design: Allende’s hope that his particular vision of socialism could be realized by Stafford Beer’s management cybernetics became manifest in a (now retro-) futuristic operations room for the likes of Shatner and Nimoy. Here is some more information on the Opsroom, including an animated 3D reconstruction. (Btw, Cybersyn briefly appears in my book ‘Cyberanthropology.’)

      P.S.: In your comment I replaced the nasty link to the picture by a cleaner one.

    Thanks for the 3D-link! kewwwwwwwwwl! :D Cybersyn brought me to Heinz von Förster – and this man was really refreshing!

      Did I get this one all right? You knew Heinz von Foerster in person?
