Bookmarklets | MOVABLE TYPE last week end I was wondering about patterns recognition. This topic is very trendy considering two books : pattern recognition (william gibson) and miss wyoming (douglas coupland). In these two books, a character is in charge of dealing with patterns in societies for two societies : the well-known RAND corporation for Vaness in Miss Wyoming and a Communication/advertisement company for Cayce in Gibson's novel.

This is very informative since these kind of books (as well as their authors) reflects cutting edge trends.

Who's next in pattern recognition ? Who works on spatial pattern recognition ? go ahead !
