Alan Turing 100

Happy belated birthday, Alan Turing! I heard about you I think in school but got more involved with your ideas when started to work on my PhD thesis Behavior of Different Types of Automata and Turing Machines on Infinite Words.

Crocheting adventures with hyperbolic planes in TEDxRiga

I am sorry for a break in my blog - in April I had to rush to Riga due to family emergency. While dealing with it I received an invitation to participate in first TEDxRiga which was yesterday, June 14 in Latvian National Opera house New Hall. It was very exciting day and I learned a lot from other speakers. My talk was celebrating 15 years since I crocheted the very first hyperbolic plane. Its internet version will be available in about 3 weeks, I will post a link here. But for now I am finishing my things here in Riga and looking forward to get back to US on June 29th and get back to blogging...
