About This Site
Why This Site Exists
OnIntelligence.org was constructed to serve two purposes. Its lesser function is to help raise awareness of the book On Intelligence, and generate excitement and interest in its contents.
The main purpose of this site is to serve as a growing resource for anyone interested in learning about this new perspective on the inner workings of the brain. Our intent is to provide a place for people of differing levels of involvement in computer science and neuroscience to discuss these concepts and learn from each other. We look forward to seeing this site grow as more people contribute their ideas, findings and insight to the subject of neuroscience and artificial intelligence.
How This Site Was Constructed
OnIntelligence.org was constructed to be as widely accessible as possible. Visitors using any browsing configuration are welcome to peruse this site. This includes visitors with text browsers, screen readers, any Web browser released within the last five years, PDAs, Treos, tablet PCs and other alternative browsing devices. This site honors user-specified style sheets, and is optimized to load in 10 seconds or less using online connections as restricted as 14.4k.
Most Netscape 4.x users will notice that while the site is perfectly functional, it displays in a text-only format. Because of the age and questionable design of this browser version, styling OnIntelligence.org in Netscape 4.x would have prevented the use of many development techniques meant to cater to the requirements of individuals with special browsing needs. Those with compromised vision (low-level sight/colorblindness) or blindness may have been particularly affected in a negative way. The current design methods do not inhibit access to Netscape 4.x users (the site simply looks different), and similarly does not inhibit use by those with specific requirements.
However, we cannot guarantee the forum will function as expected; the technology used to create and run the forum may not be supported by Netscape 4.x, depending on the version you are using. We recommend upgrading to one of the following free browsers to get the most complete OnIntelligence.org experience:
- FireFox 4.5 mb.
- Mozilla 11-15 mb.
- K-Meleon 5.3 mb.
- Opera (free/purchase options available) 3.4/16.2 mb.
