In the Further Reading section of the comments on Slide 34, the second link just goes to apple.com - I assume you meant something else?
Also, far less significantly, in slide 29 you doubled up "can"
Very nice talk all around!
Thanks, I fixed the link.
I found the point about "implicit mathematical knowledge" very interesting. It's probably one of the reasons mathematics can be so concise. A similar issue comes up when trying to convert mathematics into usable software: Things have to be made explicit. Can you recommend any further reading on this topic?
