This group blog has been founded by
- Jochen Fromm (abbreviated “jofr”), a scientist and software engineer from Berlin who studied physics and computer science in Münster and Kassel, Germany. He is administrator of this blog, the wiki and the site in general. Check out his programming blog. In 2004, he has written a small book named “The emergence of complexity“
Unfortunately, he is the only real member of the group, i.e. the only one who writes blog posts or edits the wiki so far He is neither a famous scientist nor an award winning journalist, but if you are really interested in science you are invited to join. The idea to setup a Wiki came originally from
- Russ Abbott is a Professor of Computer Science at California State University, Los Angeles. He also works as a consultant and member of the technical staff for The Aerospace Corp., El Segundo, Ca.
