Biomimetic Application Dev
Biomimetics is defined as the development of synthetic systems based on information from biological systems.
It has been debated for quite some time for web design as well as application development to become more biomimetic, at least in the sense that systems in biology appear to deal fairly well with unpredictability, failure, and interaction without strong interdependencies, which is yet to be fully accomplished in application architecture.
The basis of these debates comes from the idea that enterprise-class â€œhard-codedâ€ applications are flawed by nature. Web technologies that mimic biology with the ability to adapt to reactions of users as well as information would be more successful and appropriate for large scale or global use. We see these types of systems such as Technorati, Digg, and Google Maps becoming more prevelant and extremely useful in all different types of applications.
