From Scientific American August 2009 "Swimming in SpaceTime" in curved space the notion of center of mass is not so simple. As a result upon certain repetitive changes in one's geometry/shape the center of mass can translate across said curved surface w/o need of pushing against it and w/o need of propellant. Imagine e.g. whilst upon a friction free curved ice pond flailing one's arms and legs in a certain manner one finds oneself gliding in some direction. It must be stressed a curved surface is required also it must be stressed no new physics here it is rather a matter of Newton's laws in simple/usual/conventional form assume flat space but can not be interpreted in the usual way in curved space instead require more care. To elaborate in Newtonian Physics the curved surface is a constraint on the system which is of course a collection of forces therefor if one ignores these one obtains a wrong answer. These constraining forces are of a kind which do no work so it is possible to treat them as geometry instead of the usual F = ma. For General Relativity and its curved spacetime I am not certain the notion of constraint still applies. -Cheerio

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
