    And what colour of balloons does the birthday person desire? And how many?
    Let’s see
    2 to start with
    add four (2×2)
    that’s six
    add 8 (4×2)
    that’s fourteen
    add 16 (8×2)
    that’s thirty
    add 32 (16×2)
    that’s sixty-two

    I have a hunch you excursion into the mathematical realm of series is connected to your diving into the grammatical intricacies of tenses and mode in the conjugation of French verbs 🙂

    X 0 X [ the odd anachronistic yoking of Romuan numerals and Arabic zero ] to signify best wishes for carrying the joyous energy of the many twos and fives into the future beyond the thirties into the sixties !!!

    Is that the Jill that I knew whom I said Happy Birthday in Leicester, UK on your 29 birthday? Happy 32 + 3 months birthday.

  24. Jill

    Hm, I don’t *think* I was in Leicester on my 29th birthday. No, I don’t think I’ve *ever* been in Leicester. Sorry!

    When it came time for my thesis work, I had scripted a piece called “Rosario’s Garden”. Had it storyboarded, had made my animatic…and I found out I was pregnant. Rather than fight it, I changed the subject of my thesis…

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  […]
