Riding on the dynamics of the system

'One of Eno's favorite quotes, from the managerial-cybernetics theorist Stafford Beer, would become a fundamental guiding principle for his work: ''Instead of trying to specify it in full detail," Beer wrote in his book The Brain of the Firm, "you specify it only somewhat. You then ride on the dynamics of the system in the direction you want to go."' Full article "Brian Eno, Peter Schmidt, and Cybernetics" @ Rhizone

Brian Eno definitely deserves the "oblique strategy" prolonged gratification award. His hands have been breaking the frame of so many musicians and artists in the last decades, and in so doing generating amazing (cybernetic) art.

Thank you Artemy for the link.
