I have become much more sensitive to issues of aging.
I focus on what we can do to develop grace in the process.

Whatever your age, I hope this compilation will help you to continue
your good start in the aging process.

Scientist and entrepreneur Stephen Wolfram

He postulates that incredibly complex structures can be randomly
generated from very simple items and equally simple rules when they
are run innumerable times on a computer.

This theory, based on the field of cellular automata,
underlies what Wolfram identified as a previously hidden order
to the universe in his book, "A New Kind of Science."

He includes an application: a demonstration of music synthesis in many styles.

Accessibility Work

Attention to accessibility of all the information on web pages
gives a good impression, not only for those with full access
to the internet, but also for those who may be limited by their:

environment: too bright, too dark, to noisy, too shaky;
equipment: limited bandwidth, no visual display, audio/keypad interface;
disability: blind, low-vision, hearing-impaired, immobile.

This is the shared website for the Lexington Bicycle Advisory Committee
and the Lexington Friends of the Minuteman Bikeway. I maintain this independently from the
town of lexington site, href="http://ci.lexington.ma.us" so I can revise it conveniently.
