OTHER PUBLICATIONS by JT Velikovsky
In 2017 I published a chapter in The Encyclopedia of Information Science & Technology.
It was a republication of the chapter below, on the structure of the units of (all) culture, from Creative Technologies for Multidisciplinary Applications (2016), which was an Appendix to my PhD thesis. It also solves a 40-year old (previously-unsolved, LOL) problem in cultural evolution (I have a genius IQ, and was working on the problem for 20 years).
My PhD was also awarded in December 2016. The thesis is free online at:
Velikovsky, J. T. (2016). `Communication, Creativity and Consilience in Cinema: A comparative study of the top 20 Return-on-Investment (RoI) Movies and the Doxa of Screenwriting’. PhD Thesis, University of Newcastle, Newcastle, Australia. Retrieved from http://hdl.handle.net/1959.13/1324018

I also have a chapter in this book: Creative Technologies for Multidisciplinary Applications (2016).
