Professor John S. Gero Designing is one of the most significant of the purposeful cognitive acts of humans. Surprisingly little is known about it. This research area draws from cognitive science and applied psychology and extends techniques used in those disciplines to make them more useful in the study and elucidation of designing. The primary tool is the protocol study or protocol analysis. Here the designer is studied while carrying out designing tasks, generally in a laboratory setting although increasingly in situ. We have been examining the cognitive activities of designers using the Function-Behavior-Structure ontology that provides a framework for understanding what is happening in design terms.

Voynich manuscript The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The vellum on which it is written has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404–1438), and may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912. Some of the pages are missing, but about 240 remain.

Public Domain Review In this section of the site we bring you curated collections of images, books, audio and film, shining a light on curiosities and wonders from a wide range of online archives. With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of materials which truly celebrates the breadth and variety of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it. Some of our most popular posts include visions of the future from late 19th century France, a dictionary of Victorian slang and a film showing the very talented “hand-farting” farmer of Michigan. With each post including links back to the original source we encourage you to explore these wonderful online sources for yourself. Check out our Sources page to see where we find the content.
