    eMail, eFax, eGovernment, eElection, but also iTunes, iPhone, iMobile, etc. We’d say i represents the Internet, one step ahead of Electronics. Also i represents personality, humanness *heh* or I-ness.

    On Twitter, I asked why the chicken crossed the Möbius band. As a devout chicken, Diki answered that the chicken needed to find Euler characteristic 0. Uh, nice catch :). But, with a similar Euler characteristic, I’d rather have a sweet donuts :). Yummie.
