  1. This is fascinating stuff, but is there any way you could process the audio to make it a little more intelligible?

    It’s very difficult to understand for the hearing impaired.

    I’m glad these are being posted and I hope to go through all of them soon. Thanks!

  3. JB:

    Good continued effort.

    Do you have slides?


    PS: This talk illustrates how important functional specificity — islands of function — is in establishing an objective criterion. It also leads to the point that a nodes-arcs description list is a relevant description that is convertible into a file size. As in AutoCAD and kin, etc.

  4. KF – I’ll check on the slides.

  5. Great! (The slides — notes version? — are important. And I know there is a minimalist school of thought on PPT shows, but on topics like this where there is an explanatory rationale and/or educational element we need instead what we can call the digital chalkboard school of thought. That is, marshal and lay out your points in a step by step process, using key graphics as appropriate.)

  6. Thanks
