I just ran across a new journal, The International Journal of Unconventional Computing, with four issues published so far. As is not so unusual these days, its papers are available free online. Unfortunately, like too many online paper repositories, it appears to have no RSS feed.

Of most interest to me: Glider Dynamics in 3-Value Hexagonal Cellular Automata: The Beehive Rule which describes some simple CA rules with complex behavior. I must admit, though, that I'm a little put out at their statement that, among known binary CA rules, Life "appears to be somewhat unique" in its glider dynamics, since my CA glider database shows that Life is very far from being "somewhat unique" in this respect.

The special issue on artificial immune systems may also have some interest to security researchers, or it may just be blue sky, it's hard for me to tell.

Sure, go ahead. And no need to be quite so formal...
