…there may be thoughts we can not think.” Without new tools. – Richard Hamming via Bret Victor from “Media for Thinking the Unthinkable”.

Wonderful stuff. I see a timeline in many of the representations Victor employs and the temporal nature of a system seems to be part of what he’s emphasizing. (I often need to remind myself, when working on an app, that I’m not “designing a better poster” of a calendar, for example. Rather, it can move; it can be interrogated.)
