Colour and Culture: Practice and Meaning from Antiquity to Abstraction

Unfamiliar texts from all periods are featured, from the treatise that inspired Van Gogh to physicians' scales of hair and urine colours, and fresh light is thrown on the hidden meanings of many familiar masterpieces. The 20th century is often called the period when colour has finally come into its own. This is an attempt to examine what this claim means, and to suggest answers to many perennial questions about the role of colour.

Background

Gage attended the University of California, Berkeley, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and the Harvard Business School. While at Berkeley, he was a leader in the anti-war movement and was a delegate for Robert Kennedy in 1968 for the Democratic National Convention in Chicago, representing Berkeley and Alameda County, California. He co-chaired the Robert Kennedy campaign in Alameda County. [ [http://www.developer.com/tech/article.php/606241 John Gage: Sun's voice to the outside world] ] Gage had worked at Berkeley with Bill Joy, the person largely responsible for the authorship of Berkeley UNIX, also known as BSD, from which springs many modern forms of UNIX, including Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD. [ [http://archive.salon.com/tech/fsp/2000/05/16/chapter_2_part_one/index.html BSD Unix: Power to the people, from the code] ] Gage founded Sun Microsystems in 1982 with Bill Joy and others.

In April, 2002, Gage joined the [http://www.markle.org/markle_programs/policy_for_a_networked_society/national_security/index.php Markle Taskforce on National Security in the Information Age] , whose two [http://www.markle.org/markle_programs/policy_for_a_networked_society/national_security/projects/taskforce_national_security.php reports] explore how federal, state and local governments collect, analyze and use information as it relates to national security and homeland defense. Their two reports, when joined with the reports of the [http://www.9-11commission.gov/ 9/11 Commission] and the [http://www.wmd.gov/report/ WMD Commission] Report, formed the foundation for the 2004-2005 reforms of the intelligence and homeland security communities.

In June, 2008, Gage retired from Sun Microsystems.

NetDay

Gage is perhaps also best known as one of the founders of NetDay in 1995 with Michael Kaufman. NetDay "called on high-tech companies to commit resources to schools, libraries, and clinics worldwide so that they could connect to the Internet." cite web

] His goal is to "help solve environmental problems, specifically global warming. He will focus mainly on "green" technology investments, a growing area for Kleiner, which last month announced a new $500 million fund to target large, green-tech companies. Kleiner has backed "clean" companies in areas such as electric vehicles, biofuels and others."
