David Weinberger: "Tree structures are built into our institutions. They may even be built into our genes. So we are in a confusing and fertile period as we try to sort out what works and what doesn’t. Without trees, how would we organize college curricula, business org charts, the local library, and the order of species? How will we organize knowledge itself?"

LtU mentions "Building a Modern Computer From First Principles", a textbook that starts out with only Nand and False to build a complete computer system. The authors' presentation "From Nand to Tetris in 12 Steps" (3.5mb) lines out their idea and gives a glimpse at the extensive toolchain built to support this didactic approach.

"The 2005 International Symposium on Wikis brings together wiki researchers, implementers, and users for the first time. The goal of the symposium is to find a voice for the community. The symposium has a rigorously reviewed research paper track as well as plenty of space for practitioner reports, demonstrations, and discussions. We are honored to announce that Ward Cunningham, the inventor and host of the original WikiWikiWeb, will present the opening keynote talk at WikiSym 2005. Anyone who is involved in using, researching, or developing wikis is invited to WikiSym 2005!"
