About Pattern Recognition

Pattern Recognition is a novel by William Gibson. Pattern Recognition is a song by Sonic Youth. Pattern Recognition was a broadcast radio show that I did at WSUM in Madison, Wisconsin, 2009-2015. Pattern Recognition is an internet radio show that I do now on .

I don't understand how a heart is a spade.

But somehow the vital connection is made.
