I am fascinated by these three ideas
Artificial Life, and Computers
The idea that complex, sophisticated, adaptive solutions can be
generated by automatic, blind, knowledge-lacking mechanisms (Evolution).
The idea that complex systems, such as life, are actually the emergent
behaviors of systems with many elements that interact according to simple,
local rules (Artificial Life).
The idea that a personal desktop or notebook can be used as a laboratory
tool, for conducting scientific experiments from one's home (Computers).
experiments in web site design and navigation, Photo Manipulation, Bioinformatics, DeepZoom (Photosynth, HDView), ASP, ASP.NET, XML, VML
I used plastic dolls as words, and
made them say what I wanted:
Alife, Bioinformatics, Xml, Photography, Dolls Assemblage, DeepZoom (Photosynth, HDView) and More
|"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty
said in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean-
neither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice,
"whether you CAN make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty
Dumpty, "who is to be master- that's all."
