Swiss nuetrality is something else that fascinates me. I just finnished a slim edition called *La Place de la Concorde Suisse* by John McPhee. The only mathematical highlight was an unreduced fraction *four-tenths of a marathon*. Tisk, Tisk. (Not that I should bust anyone on usage.)

## Ergon/Logos

I found this interesting poem/game called Ergon/Logos via Ron Silliman’s blog. The work has been written such that it has vertices at which the reader can choose from one or more edges. ( I know we’ve seen this before.) What is interesting is the vizualization of this process. I won’t say more, just try it.

## Logicomix

The newest book on my wishlist is Logicomix. A graphic novel about the history of math’s search for certainty. Probably the most exciting epistemic journey of all time. A little human drama, a little logical drama, and a lot of nice illustration. The above is Bertrand Russell.
