An Interesting Idea

Someone somewhere should make a Web 2.0-ish collaboration site where people can do math together. Maybe like an IM service meshed with LaTeX capabilities, but without the coding hassle. Point-and-click type stuff. And an ability to save the notes and do projects together. Oh, and some basic graphing capabilities. And the ability to export the LaTeX code, and import and share MATLAB, Mathematica, (etc.) code.

Oh, and the ability to NAVIGATE THE FOLDS OF SPACETIME AT YOUR WILL.

    If the number of correspondents are small, email eachother. If large, set up a forum and have people upload relevant files. There, easy. (Well, except for that spacetime part. That ability can only be strictly mine lest the stability of the universe deteriorate.)

  2. I’m sure it wouldn’t be too difficult to rig an IM program so that it can use LaTeX, no?

  3. How about a networked simultaneous version of Mathematica, running off of the TARDIS?
