I wish to thank my colleagues in sLab at OCAD University, the editorial and design team at DEMO Publishing for producing such a beautiful book, and the scholars who helped me develop the ideas in this book including Stuart Kauffman, John Schumann, Greg Van Alstyne and Terrence Deacon. Finally I wish to thank my family for their patience including my wife Maria and my children Renee, David, Natalie, Rebecca, and Paul.
