Logo: Hammer cracking as it tries to hammer down a nail
This is the most recent version of the logo. It is a hammer breaking as it tries to hammer down a nail. The idea came from the Japanese saying about nails that stand out. The saying was alluded to in a recent GM commercial as well, in which a guy driving a large GM vehicle proudly explained that he didn't want to be a nail that stood out, he wanted to be the hammer that pounds the nails down.


Hello, and welcome to Stand Out Publishing. I'm a programmer who is exploring new ways of giving experimenters a better environment for developing biologically-guided artificial neural networks. So far this exploration has produced two patents, and an introductory book on the subject. The book is titled: “Netlab Loligo: New Approaches to Neural Network Simulation.” and is available here.

This site is a mess at the moment, but will serve as a single, centralized structure, around which ongoing exploration and resources can (eventually) be maintained and organized. At this time there is a contact form, as well as a glossary and a blog that are both starting to take shape.

Thanks for stopping by.
