Actually, “me too!” is pretty much how I got here to begin with. I knew that two faculty at Nazareth College were starting a math blog, and after hearing about what they envisioned, I asked to be allowed in on the fun, even if I teach at the rival college up the road. And fun it has been! I haven’t had this much fun thinking, reading, and writing about vaguely-math-related-stuff since I was killing time in grad school on sci.math and other nether realms of USENET, in the pre-web days of the net. Thank you Batman and Ξ for sharing this space!
We (or at least I) don’t plan out topics in advance; most posts are either driven by stuff we see in the news, cool things that happen in class, or flashes of inspiration in the car driving home from work. And there’s no telling what will hit a chord… who knew that Godzilla would become a recurring character on a math blog? or that Basketball Man and George Orwell Man would keep searching for those images?
Here’s to another year of friends near and far, food, horrid puns, and of course Godzilla, sharing both serious and whimsical slices of mathematics. Cheers!
