A dear friend of mine, Joe Marasco, sent me a link to the proceedings of a workshop held in Princeton in celebration of John Archibald Wheeler's 90th birthday. Among many other things, Wheeler was the thesis advisor for Richard Feynman, one of my heros. In those proceedings, George Ellis presented a paper titled True complexity and its associated
ontology which apparently cited my work in object-oriented design and classification; I've got a copy of the proceedings on order, and methinks I shall track down George and have a lively dialog with him.
I often think that if software had not found me, I would have been a quantum physicist, or a priest, or an itinerant musician. I suppose I've ended up being a little bit of each.
