3 Jul , 2015

3 Jul , 2015  

There is not a flower or bird in sight, only a small screen on which lines are moving, while the child sits almost motionless, pushing at the keyboard with one finger.

19 Dec , 2011  

Thus, be it understood, to demonstrate a theorem, it is neither necessary nor even advantageous to know what it means….[A] machine might be imagined where the assumptions were put in at one end, while the theorems came out at the other, like the legendary Chicago machine where the pigs go in alive and come out […]
