Yesterday, multiagent.com had a post about a funny podcast on emergence. The podcast is around an hour, and has four parts. First, it starts with an introduction about fireflies. Then it talks about emergence in ant colonies, in my opinion is the best part of the podcast. And then, it discusses emergence in market price, market place, cities, and google rank system and etc., and in brief the difference between this kind of emergence and what we see in ant colonies - man has understanding of the whole system and can deliberately change it. And the last part talks about emergence in brain, the activity of teeny cells leads to consciousnesses and an interview with Cristof Koch. I would recommend if you have time, enjoy this nice podcast.
