The blog has a public and a private section.

The public secton is a collection of blog posts written by myself (Aernout Schmidt) for myself, in the attempt to gradually get a log of what I understand and think about the time and the environment in which I live.

Without fiction, that will be a failure. So fiction is to be found everywhere.

Actually, the only really serious part in the blog is the forum devoted to algorithms.

The private section is (as in council chambers) a place for individual authors (Mr Sum, Mr Node, Mr Buddy, Mr Stickler and Mr Winner) to discuss proposed blog posts.

All these roles are played by me and in the background.
