  • Excellent stuff - direct link to Wikipedia page on the Voynich manuscript http://t.co/lbbSoEMDKw
  • and there’s a mention of Zipf’s law http://t.co/frYGu9AbSI : frequency of any word is inversely proportional to its rank in frequency table
  • Beautiful illustrations (resembling Matisse’s Dance that pic). NSA catalyst Friedman tried to crack it but could not http://t.co/CRV35XAZ2y
  • Sunday Times mag had good piece on mysterious Voynich manuscript. Fake or real? Book carbon dated to 1400s http://t.co/cmwxZwAItY
  • guess the flipside is that series like Poirot perpuates the myth of master detectives. So they shouldn’t be shown either?
  • Some Norwegian academic suggested that series like The Bridge should not be shown as it perpuates the myth that there are master criminals,
  • eWallet if you don’t already have similar software.
  • Bron || Broen S02E10. Superb final episode of The Bridge S02. Second run of this Danish-Swedish series giving The Killing some competition.
