The Tricki

There’s a wonderful new wiki (called the Tricki) dedicated to all the clever little tricks used in mathematical proofs. It’s a project started by none other than Timothy Gowers, author of this wonderful compendium.

What’s it called when a little donut passes through a bigger donut?

Digestion.

It’s Been a Long While, Internet

Hey there. I’ve been gone awhile, namely because I’ve become jaded about the topics of this blog. Atheism, skepticism, math, science.. I see a trend, I think. Barely anyone reads the math or science, and the atheism and skepticism posts receive Luftwaffe bombardments of stupid from crackpots and know-nothings (Godwined?). While the latter people were fun in their own right, they got kinda old. I am masochistic, though, so I might continue in that vein anyway.

Cheers.

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.
