Apophenia – Seeing Patterns that Don’t Exist

I first heard the word ‘apophenia’ in Moira Gunn’s interview with William Gibson almost a year ago.

Since then, it’s meaning has come to mind more than a couple times – though I had forgotten the word itself. In each instance, I’ve Googled for what bits of the word I could remember – yet came up empty.

Today, skimming my aggregator, I noticed Erik Haugo del.icio.us-ed the apophenia blog.

Confirms my stance that the world will give you want you need – just have to keep an eye out.
