Comment on of smell tests and sanity checks: a weekend wander by Sebastian Abbott http://confusedofcalcutta.com/2015/01/18/of-smell-tests-and-sanity-checks-a-weekend-wander/comment-page-1/#comment-3038548 Tue, 20 Jan 2015 12:03:12 +0000 http://confusedofcalcutta.com/?p=3928#comment-3038548 In our common interest of connecting dots, nodes and plain old things / ideas of interest, I want to point you and my fellow readers to a fascinating talk on The Humane Representation of Thought by Bret Victor, on Vimeo here: http://vimeo.com/115154289

It follows your train of thought of weaning us off text and keyboards as much as possible, towards a dream of once again using our bodies to learn things.

As for the sense of smell itself – it’s a fascinating and often undertrained world in itself, well worth developing in life!

Curious to hear your take on it…

Bet he’d befriend Ward Cunningham and they’d show us how “can we all just get along” without partitioning by supporting dissent via federated wiki. http://wardcunningham.github.io/

Coda: In the not too distant future App collections come together on iOS Macbook’s and Android Chromebooks to build rich business applications to benefit from folks contributing their mite.

Btw. I’ve no idea where resultant data will end up or migrate to after a 10-20 yr App era. Perhaps to the web!
