Tom Veatch

Flames of inspiration often leave smoke signals behind.
From mine, these.

My Main Subjects

I was once told: "Study what interests you."
You too: Pick a subject, any subject, below.

Or name one, here:   

Or roll the dice:   


The most interesting subject, for humans, is humans.


The human emotional system is only slightly irrational.

Logic, Math, Physics, Biology

Surprises in the so-called Hard Sciences.

Money Etc.

Thoughts of a 'capitalist roader':
Money, Taxes, Accounting, Value, Economics, 'Benefax'

Photos, Video

Some of these creations provide a service. You can: Learn some bits of a bunch of languages. Prove assertions statistically. Find colors that match. Watch audio as a scrolling spectrogram. Evaluate real estate opportunities. Generate random English-like words. Pingpong.


Projects are things with a concrete endpoint: A working program, technology, device, social system. Pingpong is a project too.

Travels and travelers. To China, India, Las Vegas. From Saudi Arabia.

Original Home Page

My previous home page got both too busy and underexplained, so I've reorganized. But it's here if you like. I still use it to find pingpong schedules and some specific obscurities that seem hard to track down otherwise.
