+The Egglepple Company

The Egglepple Company (or just Egglepple) is the pseudonym given to what is now known as Egglepple (kindergarten). It was an incorporated@ business entity in various states throughout the United States of America prior to its deprecation, reorganization, and later inclusion into LES. Historically, Egglepple was the very first establishment to be a standalone/independent recreational mathematics+ enterprise (+:=contract-based, sometimes ghostwriting for academe from 10/2000 - 02/2001).Reference: Ohio Secretary of State's Office (also of interest The Stewart Ellis Company - Gobotech, #305)

Note (+): pm:=pure mathematics, am:=applied mathematics. (see Funshine/Toonlight)

"Egglepple" is the middle name of Link Egglepple Starbureiy, after whom the company is called, and by whom the entity was created. It spawned from the unincorporated/unorganized Egglepple Portfolio (for toy [puzzle] design, circa 1991).

Note (+): Nowadays, the 'company' portion is assumed to be my roster (of characters/personalities +gallery) and the yots.

Back at The Ohio State University, I put in my time roving the halls of the mathematics, physics/astronomy, and chemistry departments. I was fairly new in that world ("publish or perish") and really wasn't familiar with LaTeX and that publishing scheme back then (the departments certainly didn't make it easy for non-staff to have access to the system), so I did what I did best when it came to visual expression, I drew stuff up/wrote stuff down on napkins (yes, at times with wax crayons🖍️ or colored pencils✏️).

The astronomy department was awesome in the regard that they treated people who came through their doors respectfully. The math department, however, was the total opposite. There was so much ego (mine included) polluting the building that it was almost laughable, yet frustrating. Anyway, there would be these 'challenge' problems/help requests from the community (ie. intra-departmental) often posted on bulletins, offering modest bounties💵 (very short-term contracts) for their solutions. The opportunist in me would peel these from the boards, take them home, and come back shortly thereafter with my answer(s) written on (paperclipped🖇️) napkins. I remember just vagabonding off of those purses (yes, I was a 'bounty hunter') for periods at a time (sometimes in conjunction with all-levels math tutoring/coaching gigs). I guess that - in addition to responding to Michio Kaku's earlier proposition - was me (being the person responsible for) turning math into my version of a sport.

+Robot (play)

Robot is a short one act performance and composition by Link Starbureiy debuting March 19, 1997. The play is a solo piece about a fictional cyborg (lnq) on Earth's🌍 moon🌚🌙 sometime in the distant future.

The ideation and drafting for Robot began in February 1997. This was his final creative arts assignment as a schoolboy, and was scheduled to be performed in an annual talent show the following month. Robot is often credited as the beginning(s) of the proprietorship, Link Egglepple Starbureiy.

I immediately labeled the show a debacle, and attribute my poor outtake to lack of preparation (the script was still being edited only minutes leading to showtime) and a mishandling of the itinerary by stage crew. In all, I later saw the show as a blessing that I would use as fuel to create more one-man acts (later attributed to my foray into vaudeville that Summer) which evolved my opéra-ballet, Stewart. (do not confuse with Link Starbureiy%roster, cyborg, or Starbureiy automaton)

+Link Starbury Network

Link Starbury Network (LSN) was the original name (circa February 1997) of the proprietorship now known as Link Egglepple Starbureiy. From the start, it was an umbrella of works (namely those based on properties from the original Egglepple portfolio) carried over from his gradeschool years that Starbureiy used for creative arts (such as puzzle design and later vaudeville [see Robot]).

LSN would morph into a mathemusical focus by 1998, after Starbureiy began working on the EGP Keynote. (also of interest The Egglepple Company)

Note (+): The name was later modified in the year 2000 to reflect the personal change in the founder's identity, which included the alphanumeric e and i in his surname. (see also Starbureiy nomenclature)

I credit LSN as my foray into the world of professionalism. I consider myself to be a professional athlete of sorts, in the direct mold of mathletics. So, the establishment of LSN marks the point on my timeline when I 'went and turned pro'.

Founded in February 1997, Link Egglepple Starbureiy (LES) is a sole proprietorship managing the career of its owner (namesake), and flagship, UUe®. The LES philosophy is to utilize defensive disclosure, whereby intellectual property (IP) becomes prior art upon intentional forfeiture of patent application code. LES is replete with assets that are constantly used as penetration points.

+UUelcome Editions

UUelcome Editions was the original name of what is now known as UUhistlegrass. (see also UUelcome, UUelcome Matte)

+The Mathemagical Society

The Mathemagical Society was an ill-fated project of Link Starbureiy at creating a come-all learned society and problem-solving noun for mathematicians under the sponsorship of The Egglepple Company.

Note (+): The Society later resulted in BOT proper.

+Scotte Lemm

Watermelon Shirt Tour


Gizmo is the nickname Link Starbureiy chose for himself when he participates in breakdancing and other streetdance artforms. (circa 1995)

+lnq's bubblegum

lnq's bubblegum is a colloquy applied to the default ballet on UUe's rotisserie. As our entrée [part of the standard opening for encryption], it is a self-contained piece which is assumed to be infeasible (but manageable).
That opus number is:
with respective tablature/handicap readings: (6¢/$154.88)
Read/spoken🗣: "LS dot thirty-five, brackets sixty-four"

Note (+): The letters 'L' and 'S' are the initials of 'Link Starbureiy'. The leaf, 'L', has weight 12, and the leaf, 'S', has weight 19, for a total of 31 (12 + 19 = 31). The pencil count/number 35 represents March 5 (third month, fifth day), Link's birthday. So, 35 - 2 = 33 remaining pencils at weight = 1 each, and with two (2) of those pencils totaling 31 in weight, the grand weight of the opus/font equals 31 + 33 = 64.
