- Created on the weekend of the 17
^{th}& 18^{th}November 2001, although I'd owned the base12.org domain since January 2000. About 4,000 words written in one splurge, almost completely without research, constituting the bulk of the textual material. - 19
^{th}November 2001, discovered A.C.Aitken's*The Case Against Decimalisation*, the Dozenal Societies of Great Britain & America (DSGB and DSA) and a highly mathematical paper by Takashi Suga proposing a Universal Unit System based on twelve. - Realized there was considerable interest in this field (some fair amount I'd inadvertently rehashed).

- Longer introduction/abstract giving overview of train of thought & conclusions
- Explanation of the notation, including why I write numbers
out in full (re-examine this idea?). Also, right now I'm
using traditional math technique of subscribting the
base (in base 10!): 360
_{10}= 260_{12}; would prefer to come up with some other notation. - Add more examples in Deja Twelve: dozen & uses of, inches, etc and review them in Lens
- Expand the examples in Division beyond just reciprocals to fractions with much larger numerators & denominators
- Do the Cultures page
- Ensure Lens mirrors Deja Twelve. Perhaps a table summarizing advantages
- Advanced math as an extension of Lens perhaps include T Suga's ideas, simplified.
- Under advanced math, look at common series (fib, fact, geometric etc)
- Find/write some code to do fractional work in base twelve
and get it online in some form of interactive worksheet
- Basic arithmetic
- Multiplication tables, division, comparing bases
- Online clock application

- Images, themes & metaphors for design. Sketch out basic "essential" illustrations and make some notes on decorative/thematic content. Recruit a designer?
- Page on alternative symbols and terminology for
A
_{12}and B_{12}. Run a competition? Make some T-Shirts with the results? - Review site content & structure. Convert to XML & design & implement stylesheets.
- Update references
- Add a per-page feedback scriptlet with option to add comments to the page (guestbook/greymatter style). Research this software.

Thanksgiving is coming up this "weekend" which for me will
start Wed 21 Nov 2001 through Sunday then I'll be at work the (whole :-)
week after. Thus aiming for completion 2 December 2001.

Thanks to Ray Greaves for spotting
a typo in the fractions table.
