Codex Seraphinianus

Last weekend, at my nephew’s high school graduation, I looked on with growing puzzlement as a group of his friends paged through a book titled Codex Seraphinianus.

The script was alien and has of yet not been deciphered. The layout resembled a primer or mini-encyclopedia explaining basic concepts from an alternate reality.

The page numbers apparently use base 21 arithmetic.

If you are intrigued, there are several websites that discuss the book, Codex Seraphinianus.

Clicking on the images will make them larger.

My dream is to help create a MOOC that will enable world wide Digital Literacy. I envision a map of learning activities for raising one’s digital literacy competencies. Learners could jump in at any time, anywhere on the map, and find guidance to master that particular skill set. The map would be dynamic, continually being improved and expanded, much like in wikipedia.
