I will be visiting family in Utah for the next week, so no posts are scheduled.
I’ve been trying to move a little bit more into 21st century technology with a tablet computer and a new cell phone. I don’t expect these to actually make me smarter, and it will certainly take me a little time to get used to all the features.
Mostly I’ve been working on the Knowledge Base. I started to expand on the history of mechanics, as the lowest level are, which is showing up some weaknesses in the development of history, especially modern history. I spent a couple of days developing the low level connections of centuries of modern history, which are now starting to reach the point where I have connections to specific historical figures. I have been looking forward to reaching this point for some time, because major figures help provide landmarks in history. Knowing who was important in a given period helps determine what was important.
