Do you need to make a distinction between false gurus and otherwise? Seems like the role or concept of guru might mean very different things in different contexts. And here's question for you: do gurus get lonely and need company, support, or a community to do their work? (Your picture suggests that gurus are isolates.)

Nancy, I appreciate how you describe designs and interactions at different levels of scale and how they interact with each other (e.g., from Congressional decisions down to the cafe table) and describe it as a story (with meat :-). Very useful.
