so i couldn't hope noticing that the old photonics lab on the 2nd
floor has now been taken over by the new
Computer Architecture Group
which appears to have formed by stealth
(seems like a Good Thing to me tho)

but the category (* Architecture Group)
had me thinking
(just re-reading Lakoff on Women, Fire and Dangerous Things)
maybe it would be useful to re-cast all the groups in the lab in this
form as a gedanken experiment:

Network Architecture Group
Language Architecture Group
Wetware Architecture Group
Architecture Theory Group (*)
Math Architecture Group
Badware Architecture Group
Software Architecture Group
Technologies Architecture Group
(*) or, perhaps, Meta Architecture Group

we could also "theme" groups - e.g.
Sustainable Networks Architecture Group
Sustainable Hardware Architecture Group
Sustainable Languages Architecture Group

then we could also have meta-groups (Kabbals?)

such as the
Software Wetware And Languages Kabbal

we could then be the Faculty of Architectures
which means we could have FAB meetings
of course' we'd have to get a pink rolls royce
for the FAB secretary - who volunteers to drive it?

[The old groups are at:
research groups and the old car
is also online at:
sentient van

etc etc
