Messages Jim Mitchell: I was shocked to hear of Mark's passing. Mark and I interacted only a few times per year over the last 10 years or so, but I always found myself resonating with his ideas, which continue to have a profound influence on me in my pursuit of ubiquitous computing at Sun Microsystems in the Java world. Of course, it was also easy to resonate with his drum playing in Severe Tire Damage, but that was a much more physical and visceral "resonating" :-) I already miss him a lot. We needed him in this valley.
Norbert Wiener (1894 - 1964) "Wiener’s work before and during World War II led to the publishing of Cybernetics, or control and communication in the animal and machine in 1948. In it, he described a new way of looking at how the world functioned, based on his research on the way in which information is transmitted and processed. He saw a world that focused on information, not energy; and on digital or numeric processes, not machine or analog. His theories not only laid the foundation for this new field of study, they also largely predicted the future development of computers." Homage to Norbert Wiener "This suite of works, as 'homage', provides a playful cybernetic exercise which touches the very heart of the 'human - machine' dialectic.
