I had noticed the amazing number of search hits my original link to Elena had created, but had been oblivious to the ammount of debate stirred-up, questioning how much of her site was / is actually real / true. Ray Girvan [at Apothecary] has two interesting anlayses and collections of links on the subject. Talk […]

Keep getting cross-search-hits with an organisation called s_t_o_r_m_f_r_o_n_t – no-link / disguised here to avoid linking / hits and providing the oxygen of publicity. Dreadful mentality these people (evil anti-islam propaganda forum in the current world climate), but the common ground is the Aryan (Proto-Indo-European) cultural origins, and the Vedic / Sanskrit sources of Hindu […]

Informal Education – Been browsing the INFED site since I linked to their Argyris biography earlier. As well as the site’s own collection of educational content, it is dedicated to promoting the idea of informal education & lifelong learning, and other resources on the subject of education and learning. It’s heavily based around a 1997 […]

When I posted the piece on Francisco Ayala a couple of weeks ago, I amost started with a flippant aside about a spooky coincidence with his name – but thought better of it when I saw how significant the guy’s work was. Anyway the story was this. The name Ayala rang a bell, because about […]

That’s Not What I Meant. Dave Pollard via Anol’s Soul Soup. Someone in this blogosphere published something very similar over a year ago, may even have been Dave. Fits very much with the Cynefin warning about what people “hear” being massively influenced by their existing “schemata”, and of course the two “laws” of Schank and […]

New Pirsig ZMM Route Map Created by Gary Wegner and brought to my attention by Henry Gurr. I was contemplating linking my route-map to Henry’s increasingly captioned series of photos – which become more amazing every visit – but my effort looks so primitive alongside Gary’s. Great contribution to Pirsigology Gary.

Gates Backs Blogs [via Lilia][via Basturea][Quote]“What blogging and these notifications are about is that you make it very easy to communicate,” Gates told executives gathered at Microsoft’s headquarters for its annual CEO Summit. Gates’ comments on blogging technology were the most extensive thus far from Microsoft’s chief software architect, signaling that the world’s largest software […]

The Edge Annual Question 2004 Q. What’s your law ?Here’s a selection of my favourite answers; Interesting how many are about meaning and communication, and more specifically about wishing to believe. Schank’s LawBecause people understand by finding in their memories the closest possible match to what they are hearing and use that match as the […]

Evolutionary Intelligence. Harvard Graduate and Doctorate biologist Francisco Jose (Ze) Ayala posted a link to his paper in Google Group comp.ai last year. I didn’t noticed the significance then. The guy has serious credentials in biological evolution and its detailed evidence in the fossil record (S J Gould has cited his work). His paper proposed […]

McAfee pulls it off. Been struggling under spam and adware in recent weeks. The spam’s bad enough, but the adware (CoolWebSearch) has gradually been hijacking and spawning browsers all over the place. Difficult to be vigilant with the firewall with four different domestic users klicking OK to so many different legitimate reasons to access the […]
