Mathematickal Arts “To me the simple act of tying a knot is an adventure in unlimited space. A bit of string affords the dimensional latitude that is unique among the entities. For an uncomplicated strand is a palpable object that, for all practical purposes, possesses one dimension only. If we move a single strand out of the plane, interlacing at will, actual objects of beauty result in what is practically two dimensions; and if we choose to direct our strand out of this plane, another dimensi…

Epizoic Media For millennia humans have used oxen and horses to move our tools. In the digital age the group of animals carrying tools is rapidly expanding. Non-humans are fitted with wearable technology, in past decades it has predominantly been GPS, but what happens when they start carrying rich mobile media like we do?

Concerning the indiscriminate use of the ampersand The ampersand should be avoided in body copy. It disrupts the flow of the text and produces an unsightly type colour.

Critical Questions for Research Proposals As director of ARPA in the 1970’s George H. Heilmeier developed a set of questions that he expected every proposal for a new research program to answer. He referred to them as the “Heilmeier Catechism”. These questions still survive at DARPA and provide high level guidance for what information a proposal should provide. It's important to answer these questions for any individual research project, both for yourself and for communicating to others what…
