What is iiii.ca ?

Obviously, i i i i = i 4 = (i 2) 2 = (−1) 2 = 1.

So iiii.ca officially reads as “one dot see eh.”

FYI, iiii technically reads as i to the fourth — NOT four eyes — which serves as an elegant manner of putting across the sense of 1.

What does the site logo mean?


In Morse code, a dot is “dit,” and a dash is “dah.” A set of dot and dash is “dit-dah,” similar to “tick-tock.” So the rotated four i’s symbolize the passage of time. This image can also be associated with a timeline laying out four events at four specific points in time.

The maple leaf represents Canada (.ca), the country where Jason lives.
