About Me

  • Hello you. I'm a 38-year old MSc student, studying Advanced Computer Science at Sussex University. I'm especially interested in Internet and mobile software, sensors and pervasive computing, user interfaces, and the process of developing great software.

    Before that I spent 11 years running Future Platforms, a software company I co-founded which makes lovely things for mobile phones, and which I sold in 2011.

    I read a lot, write here, and practice Aikido and airsoft. I live in Brighton, a seaside town on the south coast of the UK, with two cats and a clown.

But isn't there an age (maybe maturity) cut-off, before which you cannot distiguish what you know from what another person knows?

Seems like a similar thing to me...

Err... isn't that what the quote I've posted above is saying? That children think everyone knows what they know...


So its saying that people who have religion haven't grown up?


Hmm, interestingly one of the main symptoms of autism is that children with autism do not develop that sense of other people as distinct from themselves (i.e. the famous Sally-Ann test)...

It would be entertaining to see someone try to argue that people with a strong religious mentality have something equatable to autism. :-)
