...a companion blog to "Math-Frolic," specifically for interviews, book reviews, weekly-linkfests, and longer posts or commentary than usually found at the Math-Frolic site.

"Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty – a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show." ---Bertrand Russell (1907) Rob Gluck

"I have come to believe, though very reluctantly, that it [mathematics] consists of tautologies. I fear that, to a mind of sufficient intellectual power, the whole of mathematics would appear trivial, as trivial as the statement that a four-legged animal is an animal." ---Bertrand Russell (1957)

On To Year Four...

This blog, that started as a tentative, experimental offshoot of my older Math-Frolic blog, just had it's third anniversary. THANKS to all who've participated, or emailed with comments/ideas, and to the publishers who send books along! ;-)

It's been fabulous to make contact with so many great math communicators, enthusiasts, and resources... pure fun in fact... xkcd said it best ;-) :
