    Now playing SpaceCollective
    Where forward thinking terrestrials share ideas and information about the state of the species, their planet and the universe, living the lives of science fiction. Introduction
    Featuring Powers of Ten by Charles and Ray Eames, based on an idea by Kees Boeke.
    A year has passed since I passed my own test for being a knowmad. Like many, I have acquired a scattered digital identity. Was just piecing together a few of the links to my digital presence at When I added the link to spacecollective, it reminded me I have not posted here for a long time. And I want to thank you all. So there.

    Occasionally I google myself, no, sorry, the self is not googleable. I google my pen name, nah, the products of the pen or typewriter at best are not googleable either. Once again, occasionally I google my pseudonym (yess, that word works) and here are the current results. (Click at your own risk, I hope it's all about me and all good. ;-) Probing my niche here, image courtesy of Ebon Fisher.

    Update 2011-05-12:

    End of update.

    What is a better digital knowmad equivalent word for name, pen name, pseudonym?

    Models vs. Patterns by Monica Anderson

    Grasping how things are. Why understanding comes first, before reasoning, and what role pattern matching plays.

    The most common question in the Q&A after my Model Free Methods talk was "Aren't those Holistic Patterns really a kind of Models?" In order to clarify this issue I created this presentation. I also talk about Reductionist and Holistic approaches to aiming a cannon.

    See also the whitepaper by Monica Anderson A Radical Approach to Understanding Text (pdf download).
