  • Rerouting: Is It Possible to Reach Two Destinations Simultaneously?

    In our GPS world, getting from one place to another is easy: you input your destination, and you’re on your way. But what if you want to arrive at two places at once? Is it possible?

  • I call it the Art of Coming and Going

    I call it “coming and going.” I have set up one form of it for myself, and I have seen others with many variations on the theme. What do I mean?
