November 17, 2018: Illuminated Site of the Week: What Shape Will Society Take?
Maybe they've used too much finesse, maybe not enough, but it's hard to tell what Vi Hart and Nicky Case are driving at. Do they inform you the perils of racism? Would they have you support STEM in your community? What's their angle? Their sphere of influence appears to be all things geometrical, summed up in two glorious dimensions in the Parable of the Polygons.
Can you make the Squares and Triangles happy? All you have to do is put them next to more of their own kind. Oh, they're not shapist, they just like a little of the familiar. But moving one makes another unhappy so you have to move them to a new home and . . . well, if you're not careful, eventually everyone gets bent out of shape. Part video game, part social experiment, part community commentary, part coding exercise, it can be all these things and more. Happiness takes many forms; let it into your circle.
