The overloaded semantics of terms like 'degeneracy' and 'freebase' provide
an amusing introduction to this blog about the mathematical idea of
degeneracy.  Oddly, while there is a good article on what degeneracy is in
Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Degeneracy>, there is little
mention of what it is good for.  In short, it is useful when you want
computational infrastructure to still work on the edge cases.  This blog
introduces the idea and shows how how it applies to computing and ontology.
