Singularity Magazine August 2011

In this issue of Singularity, you’ll read my interview with Dave Doolin, who writes at Website In A Weekend. We talked about the US economy, the prospects of being a generalist in Singapore and WordPress. He’s also on Twitter @websiteweekend.

Download the August 2011 issue (about 11 MB).

And if you haven’t watched it, I also explain the maths concept of Cantor sets in a video. Harry Potter references and special yellow screen effects. Watch it. Now.

You’ll also read about the second part of my visit to the Singapore Science Centre. There’s a special section on optical illusions. See if you’re stumped.

Ok, an announcement first. I asked, you spoke, and I listened. Singularity is now free (I can already hear people rejoicing and crying for joy).

In this issue,

Drawing the line
Are you present-focussed or future-facing?

Milky Way and Raspberries
A little milk, a little space. A little fruit, a little taste.

Our cover story:
Vegetarian Continuum
From fruitarians to Hannibal Lecters.

Hebrew notes
Similar alphabet system to Greek and fascinating numbers from the language of the Jews.

New feature

I’ve added an “upcoming events” section. The idea is to list interesting events happening around the world. Hopefully, one of them occurs where you live, and you can experience the fun. Art exhibitions, science fairs, cultural shows and technological displays are all fair game.

One of them is the Buenzli 19, a demoscene party. It’s held in Switzerland from 20 to 22 August. I’ve never been to a demoparty before, so if you’ve been to one, please tell me what it’s like.

If you know any other fun events, please let me know.
