“The mathematician’s patterns, like the painter’s or the poet’s must be beautiful; the ideas like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way. Beauty is the first test: there is no permanent place in the world for ugly mathematics.” ―
We sweep through the world’s three major time zones; updating our understanding of the literature at the technical foundation of education community safety and sustainability in those time zones 24 times per day. We generally eschew “over-coding” web pages to sustain speed, revision cadence and richness of content as peak priority. We do not provide a search facility because of the time sensitivity of almost everything we do.
Our daily colloquia are typically doing sessions; with non-USA titles receiving priority until 16:00 UTC and all other titles thereafter. We assume policy objectives are established (Safer-Simpler-Lower-Cost, Longer-Lasting). Because we necessarily get into the weeds, and because much of the content is time-sensitive and copyright protected, we usually schedule a separate time slot to hammer on technical specifics so that our response to consultations are meaningful and contribute to the goals of the standards developing organization and to the goals of stewards of education community real assets.
We do not do any legislative advocacy at any level. We track federal legislative action because it provides a stroboscopic view of the cultural moment in communities that are simultaneously a business and a culture. Even though more than 90 percent of such proposals are at the mercy of the party leadership the process does enlighten the strengths and weakness of a governance system run entirely through the counties on the periphery of Washington D.C. It is impossible to solve technical problems in facilities without sensitivity to the zietgeist that has accelerated in education communities everywhere.
We typically post one federal and one state level consultation or action every day for at least one of the 50-states — in the lower right corner of our home page when most education communities in the United States have begun a new work day. Examples, irregularly linked:
Comments due September 29: NIST Artificial Intelligence Risk Management Framework.
Proposal for new field of standardization activity UN Sustainable Development Goals – Requirements for Any Organization (Comments on proposal from Dansk Standards due to ANSI by October 28. See Page 50)

The world’s first #Standard has been around for nearly 2.6 million years! Ever since then, standards have been in place to protect our #Health and #Safety. Make sure to check out the ANSI Webstore to obtain any standard you may need! https://t.co/XpGOICEsbf pic.twitter.com/FbXJ6NQu7c
