Welcome to my personal web site (which is not my work web site).
If you got here by clicking on a link, using a bookmark, or from a search engine and you were really looking for Gebesse Computer Consultants, they (we?) are at www.gebesse.com.au.
I have worked in the computer business for years and years and you can find out the details in my Résumé. You can also read a musical Résumé here. That's enough about work. This site is personal and is about what I like and what I do in my spare time.
The Trouble with Science by Robin Dunbar. The title of this book might suggest that it is anti-science, but in fact the author posits that science is a natural part of human existence (and even that of some animals) because it is about how organisms explain and interact with the world around them. The author has produced a very good summary of the philosophical path through Popper, Kuhn, Lakatos and Feyerabend, and there is commentary about the relationship between religion and science which mightn't please Richard Dawkins but which provides a credible explanation for the ubiquity of religion across societies (and which allows for religion to be abandoned when better knowledge comes along).
