       In a little paper called 'Situated Design and Universal Maintenance,"
Authors Yuwei Lin and Enrica Zini describe a
software evolution pattern recognition that was
inspired by the Free/Libre Open Source Software
Development. Lin and Zinie are associated with
ESRC National Centre for E-Social Science,
University of Manchester and Debian GNU/Linux.

They write:
"While reusing and recycling software code and
tools gradually becomes a common practice and
understanding, the discussion on SDUM raises many
key research questions in software development
mainly on how to facilitate cross-boundary
collaboration between diverse actors."

Writing from Brussels, Belgium, author Philp Yaffee writes:

The success of an oral presentation
depends on the precision of its structure.
Mathematics is all about precision. It is
therefore not so odd to think that applying some
of the concepts of mathematics to oral
presentations could make them substantially more
effective.=94 And that insight provides the
inspiration of an interesting, insightful, and useful paper.
