 CDEIS.COM strives to entertain, engage and educate, with useful and thoughtful content for the discerning visitor.
We also encounter from time to time excellent, often leading-edge, thinkers and organizations, to which we gladly link.
 We hope you enjoy our site, a collaboration of several like-minded, free-thinking individuals --- and a real labor of love.

  CDEIS is pronounced 'Sea Dice', hence the pair of dice against a mellow watery background in the banner.
