Yeah, I looked it over and didn't see anything too remarkable.
It's basic physics that giant inertial bodies can't turn on a dime. Listening to "we must change" noises from the Borg Cube (TV allusion) is always good for a chuckle.
On the brighter side, it looks like I'm renewing my Martian Math contract and will be continuing to pump those memes out there, in cahoots with OPDX etc.
The next hurdle: Dead Mathematicians Society or whatever it's called is pondering my proposal to present in April, on the work of three dead mathematicians, two of whom will likely be stricken from the list as philosophers-in-disguise, leaving me with Karl Menger only.
I've posted about the tiny piece of his contribution I've used as a puzzle piece in a math custom-tailored for animators / cartoonists / claymation people. Karl called it his "geometry of lumps" which immediately evokes clay-like images of "res extensa" (as Descartes would have called it). Portland is sometimes known as ToonTown because of the anime that goes on and the many toonists who've called this home: Groening, Plympton, Callahan, Vinton and others.
I'll let you know how that goes (with the presentation).
University of Portland is on tap as a next venue as well, not counting an appearance at Pycon, more a recruiting drive for more teachers than a performing gig.
For those new to this list, I'm like this circus clown lobbyist for some experimental curricula in need of more pilots and yes, eventually whole schools (some boarding).
I say "circus clown" because of the freakish company I keep and its sometimes hilarious characters. One of our andragogy guys climbed a tree the other day and stopped traffic. That's the OPDX side of the family.
