  • “PigmeiGigantumhumerisimpositiplusquamipsiGigantesvident”first recorded in the twelfth century and attributed to Bernard of Chartres, delightfully studied by Robert K. Merton, Aphorism; = a short phrase that expresses a true or wise ideacommonly ascribed to Isaac Newton, Newton ”If I have seen further it is by standing on ye sholders of Giants”Ambiguity: Newton clearly uses it to very humbly say that in fact HE HIMSELF has invented—in this case—the theory of colours
  • Standing on the shoulders of giantsParadox: 2 Pound Coinsource: http://www.pbase.com/image/41304245----- Meeting Notes (04.07.13 10:34) -----2 pound coin—one of the most expensive coins. "Standing on the shoulders of giant": do we have to pay for this extraordinary place that allows us to see farther than the giants themselves?
  • ----- Meeting Notes (04.07.13 10:34) -----The ahporims picked up by a famous web search engine immediately pictures another ambiguity of the aphorism: borrowing, theft, plagiarism, conscious and unconscious quotation—the motor of scientific discovery, and indeed: artistic; the blurring boundaries between copying and inspiration
  • That means when design and digital fabrication want to be and have to be political (to realize the promise of the 3rd industrial revolution) they have to leave isolation – as to be isolated is to be deprived of the capacity to act

    4. 4. • information interchange format • sharing documentation • independent of system used at individual lab “FabML” would be an XML definition tailored for Fablab project documentation needs - including things such as controlled vocabularies for machines and materials needed to complete a project in order to allow global searchability and specifying and formalizing other aspects of manufacturing (which will undoubtedly become more obvious as the project proceeds).

The Human Condition. p. 161 | p. 188
