beartato phd


Need to go to hub and get new id (or at least new sticker)
so I can go to Hillman and get pitt library card, so
I can go to Thackery and get book on algebraic topology.
Mmm, homology theories.
Idea from a couple days ago: there are lots of
write-a-program-to-control-a-giant-death-bot type
games. Why not write a collection of programs which control
a bunch of agents in a civ-like world model, where propaganda
(i.e. changing beliefs, i.e. changing programs) is an action?
Each player would have a 'paradigm', a collection of programs
that refer to each other...
