Am I a scientific American?

| 2 Comments

My life is public. I write here daily and I've been contributing my ideas, words and images to newsgroups, Internet bulletin boards, publications and websites for more than ten years. So when you do a web search for "Kristen McQuillin" you'll find a lot of references.

But today I found one that surprised me. I was playing with KartOO, a search engine that draws relational diagrams and I clicked through to this article at Scientific American. They borrowed images I'd drawn for a 1997 grad school project on the history of zero. What a surprise--they never even asked. I took the original project off the web a while back, but my images lived on. I discovered my History of Zero project cited in two other places so I've just dug out the files, updated them and put them back on my site.

1st time I've ever heard of Kartoo - very cool search engine. Quite accurate too (I just checked it out).

I've been wondering what happened to the daily blog - nearly wanted to write and check that everything was ok... ;-) Check in quite often, to get a refresher taste of Tokyo life...

Thanks,
Ben.

I see you were credited for the top picture, thats kinda cool. Though probably better if they would have checked with you.
