151: Antifragility – A Preview

Antifragility is the word of the day!

The idea of antifragility kept coming up today and yesterday (more on that in the episode itself), so I thought I’d do a quick episode introducing the idea.

Antifragility is the quality of a system that it gets stronger when bad or unexpected things occur. It’s like a super-version of resilience or robustness.

The term was invented by Nicholas Nassim Taleb in his book Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder.


I mentioned several other podcast episodes, both mine and others, as well as a video from Chris Butler, some of my blog posts, and a Farnam Street post from which I got the quotes from Antifragile.
