Mr. James Gleick- Science Author

Happy Birthday - August 1, 1954

Making the mysteries of Science accessible and entertaining.

Gleick explained the "Butterfly Effect"

without making my head spin. No small feat.

"Everything we care about lies somewhere in the middle,

where pattern and randomness interlace."

"With words we begin to leave traces like breadcrumbs:

memories in symbols for others to follow.

Ants deploy their pheromones, trails of chemical information;

Theseus unwound Ariadne's thread.

Now people leave paper trails."

Gleick's paper trail is a perfect merger of prose and science.
