What have you learned about people, doing this?
It’s one thing to say “I’ve answered most of 12,500 questions about life, all by hand.” It’s another thing to show it. Thanks to some MIT students, I was able to show it recently, displaying 8,000 cards in an MIT lobby, just long enough to take photos. Take a look! It’s a good time to […]

What is art?
I’m feeling happy today, having just finished a great new revision of the Wheel Questions book proposal. Over the last 12 months I’ve improved it seven levels up that I can think of.
