i missed #2 today.

the concepts of zero and infinity make for good reading, except i'm not sure when to start, because it'll never end.


btw, the at symbol, @, has an interesting etymology.

it is easily understood in english as a position within a referenced area or as the mathematical denotation of price (4 bananas @ .69/lb) , but other languages have odd animal based descriptions for the symbol.

interesting stuff: A Natural History of the @ Sign: Part One
