What is Prince’s Real Name?

We assumed that you probably have been wonderin’ this since day one.

Directly from my search, I felt the colors were appropriate.

1.1 What is Prince’s real name and date of birth?

Prince Rogers Nelson was born on June 7, 1958.

1.2 How tall is Prince?

It is believed that he is 5’2″ (157cm) tall, but it’s kind of hard to know for sure since he’s always wearing those heels!

1.3 What‘s with the name changes?

On June 7th, 1993 (his 35th birthday), Prince announced that he would change his name to an unpronounceable symbol. The glyph incorporates the male and female signs along with the alchemy symbol for soapstone.

The usual ASCII representation of the symbol is:

O ( +>

That’s a capital "o," open parenthesis, plus sign, and greater-than sign.

However, on May 16th, 2000 Prince announced that he would resume using his former name, because his final contract with Time Warner (i.e., his publishing contract with Warner-Chappel) had expired. It seems that he will continue to use the symbol as a logo, however.

What Is Intelligence, Anyway?

by Isaac Asimov

What is intelligence, anyway? When I was in the army, I received the kind of aptitude test that all soldiers took and, against a normal of 100, scored 160. No one at the base had ever seen a figure like that, and for two hours they made a big fuss over me. (It didn’t mean anything. The next day I was still a buck private with KP - kitchen police - as my highest duty.)

but what is web2.0 really?

Web 2.0, Communism, Pet Rocks and the Wisdom of Crowds at blogs.pathf

We expect to see many new web applications over the next few years, both truly novel applications, and rich web reimplementations of PC applications. Every platform change to date has also created opportunities for a leadership change in the dominant applications of the previous platform.
