  The Third Culture - Chapter 22
Doyne Farmer: In the last half of this century, the view has emerged that life and consciousness are natural and inexorable outgrowths of the emergent and self-organizing properties of the physical world.
Doyne could pull off a major coup intellectually, so it makes me sad that he's not lending his intuitive inventiveness more to complexity, because he would have a lot to contribute.
Doyne's talents were wasted at Los Alamos, and he had the foresight to escape from LANL and start his own company to apply his nonlinear time-series forecasting techniques to currency and other financial markets.

 Edge: J. DOYNE FARMER   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
J. DOYNE FARMER, one of the pioneers of what has come to be called chaos theory, is McKinsey Professor, Sante Fe, Institute, and the co-founder and former co-president of Prediction Company, a firm whose business is automatic trading of financial instruments based on time series based directional forecasting methods.
Farmer was an Oppenheimer Fellow at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and later started the complex systems group, which came to include some of the rising stars in the field, such as Chris Langton, Walter Fontana, and Steen Rasmussen.
In addition to his work on chaos, he has made important theoretical contributions to other problems in complex systems, including machine learning, a model for the immune system, and the origin of life.

 Artificial life - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
They then compared that to the reaction of real termites to identical changes in laboratory colonies, and refined their theories about the rules which underlay the behavior.
Doyne Farmer was a key figure in tying artificial life research to the emerging field of complex adaptive systems, working at the Center for Nonlinear Studies (a basic research section of Los Alamos National Laboratory), just as its star chaos theorist Mitchell Feigenbaum was leaving.
Farmer and Norman Packard chaired a conference in May of 1985 called "Evolution, Games, and Learning", which was to presage many of the topics of later alife conferences.

 V. 19:9 (70-80): Interview: J. Doyne Farmer by John Sweeney
The number of physicists and engineers who have dented their axes on market prediction is so vast that it led to the derisive term “quant.” But who are these guys, and what are they up to?
Doyne Farmer studied physics, receiving a bachelor of science degree from Stanford University and a doctorate from the University of California at Santa Cruz.
In 1991, together with Norman Packard, Farmer founded Prediction Co., a firm whose business is the automatic trading of financial instruments founded on time series—based directional forecasting methods.

Harris ascribes these environmental sources almost entirely to the peer group - that is, to influences operating outside of the family environment.
