BIS Week: What Is Bis’s Favourite BIScuit

Pumpkin Publog/3 comments • 281 views

Often in scholarly discussions of the revolutionary impact of Bis on the cultural scene in the late nineties, little notice is taken of the trivial. Nevertheless to understand exactly how the Teen-C revolution came about, sometimes the trivial becomes a solid motivational factor. And a key question stands there in plain sight, staring us down with its obviousness. But as pointed out by no less that Garibaldi, many revolutions are predicated on trivial tipping points, and perhaps the blue touch paper of the Teen-C revolution stares at us from their name.

Ie, what did they like to eat with a cup of tea?

    While we’re on the subject of biscuits I’m also curious to know the significance of the fact that the two rivals for the credit for inventing calculus are immortalised in biscuit form – Fig Newton and Choco Leibniz.

    Does Dan Brown have anything to say about this or has he been paid off by the powerful mathematical-confectionary brotherhood?

    The winning biscuits will be handed out at Poptimism while the Bis megamix that Steve is working on is played.

    I will not be there to check this is happening
