Things to see: @invis_insight


I've worked for more than 13 years, designing products for web ventures, from 3-person initiatives to medium-large industry. Strong Presentation and Negotiation Skills have been key to this work (in addition to the full monte; infrastructure, database design, core algorithms, scaling, backed and frontend frameworks, test-ability, compliance, and UI/UX + SEO).

I also design technology & products by drawing from a history of fabrication, prototyping, sourcing, and scientific research (applied physics). I am a practicing sculptor, and establish new product aesthetics via my own approach to engineering fluid-mechanical processes. From this work in water, I have built a broad & deep knowledge-base on the application of fluid phenomenon to industry needs.

I have lead successful small-capitalization stages, wrote grants & engaged program officers, developed teams and timelines, design of experiments, measurement, and business development.

comment Harvard Architecture: How did Harvard Mark I separate data and instruction?
I think this is a bit too technical for a 'cultural practice'. By-example, this question is mis-tagged as :architecture: because [here] that is a topic of buildings. This question can only be well-answered by an engineer. AS such, it should be asked on ElectricalEngineering.SE or Stackoverflow.SE. It is a valuable question. It's nice that Yannis answered it.

You might try this question on the russian lang site, though I agree that we do have an etymology tag here.

... obfuscates: the structure of 'pagan' / polytheistic beliefs, e.g. beings, animistic acts, etc. You do not address this matter here, and on your other answer you only begin to by naming 3 goddesses.

While it's fair to include the Christian and Judaic conversions and migrations into the region, the comparison to Greek pagans is drawn to ask a question that squarely-focuses upon a topic that Islam historically avoids and obfuscates

comment What was the structure of religious beliefs among the Arabic peoples before conversion to Islam?
I think that answering this question requires that someone go into that detail, rather than indicating that 'certain literature does in-fact handle it'. Also, Islamic literature on the "idol worshipping" pre-islamic religions are likely to be as unfair in their treatment of subject matter as Spanish Colonial book, the Florentine Codex, was of the meso-american beliefs.

comment What was the societal wealth demographics when the major pyramids were built?
@kubanczyk you're right that land was, for many cultures, currency, and only the landed had actual wealth/capital. Thus, serfs. A land was richer for skilled usage == labor & tending. So, though 'uncapitalized', wealth of the nation still was held through individuals of the nation / culture.

@DVK I hear you, regarding valuation. Since our money is fiat currency, we are all natively-divorced from understanding that currency is a relative standard, just as you say, *but that something always drives it. The wink of a demigod may be worth $1bn USD; but that's the going rate. Since that demigod/demagogue controls the wink, most of the wealth is probably thus concentrated in less than 0.00001% of the society.

This is interesting information; would you please expand upon it so that it addresses the question more directly? Thank you.
