David Weinberger writes about Jeff Hawkins’ book:

Here’s why I liked the book. First, it gets past the “brain is a computer” analogy. Instead, Hawkins says the brain is all memory, no CPU. It has no programs other than the most basic pattern-matching “algorithm” and I don’t think that’s the right word…the ocean does a good job of sorting rocks on the beach without using any algorithms. Second, it gives a simple explanation that (if right) accommodates enormous complexity.
