Jason Jixuan Hu, (born 1957 in Kunming, PRC.) is a Chinese American cyberneticist, independent scholar and managing director of WINTOP Organizational Learning Laboratory,[1] and organizer/facilitator of the Club of Remy(Youtube Channel). He is noted for his work on "cognitive capacity in human communication, conflict resolution and cooperation solicitation,"[2] and on view on distance education in America.[3]


Born in Kunming, Yunnan, Hu obtained his B. Sc. from Heilongjiang Institute of Commerce, in Electronic Engineering in 1981, became a Certified System Engineer by Sino-Japanese Software Developing Center in System Dynamics Modeling in 1985, and obtained his Ph.D. from The George Washington University,[4] with a primary focus in Management & Organizations and secondary focus in Philosophy of Social Sciences (1995);[5]

Hu came to the US in 1986 as a visiting scholar to study Cybernetics and System Science, back to China in 1988 and left PRC after what happened on June 4, 1989 in Tiananmen Square. He became an American citizen after September 11, 2001. After a diversified career path spanning from research and teaching, entrepreneurship and senior management, training and consulting, he is currently an independent researcher and managing director of WINTOP Organizational Learning Laboratory,[1][6] a consulting-training partnership based on Phoenix, Arizona, USA.,[5][7][8] and organizes an international intellectual discussion club, the Club of Remy (clubofremy.org). Hu is a lifetime member of American Society for Cybernetics[9] and initialized CYBCOM forum in 1993, a listserv now evolved into a Google Group. He has traveled extensively in 30+ countries and studied 9 major religions. His teaching/training/consulting experiences involve organizations in U.S., China, Hong Kong, Austria, Japan and Thailand. He speaks Mandurian and English proficiently, with limited conversational capacity in German and Japanese.


Hu's inquiries can be classified into three periods:

Hu has also developed a four-dimensional system thinking framework which was applied to comparative study of organizational dynamics, an expansion of Ashby's law of requisite variety,[18] a taxonomy of system thinking, and to a new perspective of second-order cybernetics and second-order science, all presented in Club of Remy YouTube Channel.
