 +  * [[Stafford Beer]] and [[Jane Jacobs]] both lived in the same neighbourhood (The Annex) in Toronto.
 +  * They knew each other, but never really collaborated.

 +  * There was a challenge to Jane Jacobs'​ credibility,​ because she was using a Switzerland comparison that referred to mountains, and Uruguay is flat as a pancake.
