LIBRARY LIST (abridged)


Assembling Cerebricity [Listen , 0.5MB]

E'lightened automation:
Tiered step-n-fetch commands,
Demands from a client-owner-server
Administering a DIYing breed,
A do it yourself bureaucracy.

Model users grouped, securing
A real state of being--
Profile properties,
Front to back/end-to-end--
Location, location, location;
Distribution, distribution, distribution.

Negotiating rights and resources
Through a language typed and coded,
Speak spoken by a host
Channeling information, a configuration
Enabling smart thinking:
Assembling cerebricity.
