Thanks for your nice replies.

my mind is scattered, but i'm sending this e-mail to do the friendly
reply thing.  if you have a link to your validation project maybe i
can test it out or something.

what can we do to support your work?

[that sounds like cool (and important) work.  i'm curious.  I always
think towards pointing towards blockchained history, to validate

I rediscovered prolog and logic programming recently.  Interesting
ideas of formal validation of statements of facts.  Machine learning
algorithms can now somewhat break the automation barrier between
statement and experience.]

there's been read/write tech for some time, although that hasn't been
my focus.  what are you looking for in this?

i've always been big on optimising algorithms, but yeah it does look
like that kind of thing will happen pretty soon.

small parts! small parts =)
