Gee,

I knew this allready!(shucks)

I think you might want to thank Ian Stewart for the answer. But I will thank Rob and Miles too for refering to it.

There is more about Ian Stewarts work (and myself) at http://www.cthisspace.com

Just incase you were interested any further.

Thanks Claire. I've taken a quick look around the site, but err, who is Ian Stewart?

Hya Miles,

Ian Stewart is the guy who does maths and geometry...."as a professor of mathematics and Gresham professor of Geometry at the University of Warwick. He serves as mathematics consultant to New Scientist and in 1995 received the Royal Society`s Michael Faraday medal for outstanding contributions to the public understanding of science.
He has written or co-authored numerous books of popular mathematics, including Game, Set and Math; Fearful Symmetry; Does God Play Dice? and, most recently, Life's Other Secret. He has also collaborated with Jack Cohen and Terry Pratchett to write The Science of Discworld.
He presented the Royal Institution's Christmas Lectures in 1997 (televised in January 1998).

He scripted and presented the December 1992 BBC radio program Chaos! His appearances on British TV include the 1997 Christmas Lectures The Magical Maze, Country Tracks, Equinox programmes Chaos, Antichaos, and Great Little Numbers, The Late Show, Reality on the Rocks, Esther, The Bride of Frankenstein, Sex and the Scientists, The Numbers Game, and Six Experiments that Changed the World; and he has also appeared in Future File on the European Business News satellite channel."

A site called FTL about science news and related subjects appeared on the net (for no particular reason apart from, did we, Ian, Ian Stewart and another Ian, the three I's, or the "The Tri-I's", and the editor, and who ever else and myself etc...) want to be part of a mag?

We did.

It was.

Then at about slightly later, my site appeared on the net too.

FTL finished. (there could be talks about having a new site for related subjects on the horizon)

FTL was copied onto my site. The link that is linked from here is to my site with his work on it, on the FTL magazine (as a subsection).

Because Ian was earlier a contributor to our old magazine called FTL which is now a subsection of my site, his work is seen as a result.


My site carried on.


Don't worry, the confusion is universal.
