Arch-OS: An Implementation of Cybrid Strategies
A review of the literature on Intelligent Buildings suggests an ideal of a building as an autonomous system that controls its internal and external environments. The model, whose origin lies with early models of artificial intelligence, effectively treats the building as a slave to human needs, and appears to invest more intelligence in the building than in its occupants. This paper proposes that automated environments be understood as extensions of human sense and awareness. It describes an ope
Anthropic Cyberspace: Defining Eletronic Space from First Principles
This paper proposes principles for the design of human-centered, anthropic cyberspaces.

Simultaneity - Albert Einstein and the Theory of Relativity
This is a very informative and well put together video that gives about as easy an explanation on the theory of relativity that you are going to find. It is animated well and explained simply enough that most physics students could get a grasp on it. The video consists of explaining a situation where two different people (one on a speeding train and the other on a platform as the train speeds past) see the same event but have different observations of what happened based on their rel
