explain the fundamentals of general systems theory, particularly regarding information systems theory
explain the fundamentals of general systems thinking, particularly regarding information systems thought approaches
explain the fundamentals of general systems practices, particularly regarding information systems practices

L3 Traits

Overview

Chapter 10 of General Systems Theory takes as its object the field of Informatics, or as it is more commonly known as in the United States, Information Systems Architecture and Technology, which, not coincidentally, is the subject of this course. Since one of the most globally recognizable information system is the Internet, and because the Internet is in fact an excellent example of systems theory, thinking, and practice applied to architectural design matters, this assignment asks the student to take a closer look at the main design idea behind the Internet and relate that idea to possible consequences that are predicable through the lens of general systems theory.

Action Items

Write a two page paper addressing the following:
Describe the main design idea behind the origin of the Internet
Taking a general systems theory perspective, propose possible consequences of that idea

Besides using the course text, General Systems Theory, find and use at least two other scholarly sources as a basis for this discussion.
