Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

I’m now trying to announce all my new writings in one place: on Twitter.

Why? Well…

Someone I respect said he’s been following my online writings, off and on, ever since the old days of This Week’s Finds. He wishes it were easier to find my new stuff all in one place. Right now it’s spread out over several locations:

Azimuth: serious posts on environmental issues and applied mathematics, fairly serious popularizations of diverse scientific subjects.

Google+: short posts of all kinds, mainly light popularizations of math, physics, and astronomy.

The n-Category Café: posts on mathematics, leaning toward category theory and other forms of pure mathematics that seem too intimidating for the above forums.

Visual Insight: beautiful pictures of mathematical objects, together with explanations.

Diary: more personal stuff, and polished versions of the more interesting Google+ posts, just so I have them on my own website.

It’s absurd to expect anyone to look at all these locations to see what I’m writing. Even more absurdly, I claimed I was going to quit posting on Google+, but then didn’t. So, I’ll try to make it possible to reach everything via Twitter.

Re: Twitter

It’s nice to have all pointers at one place! The Twitter link given at the end of the post doesn’t seem to work, but the link at the top does (

Re: Twitter

This post led me to poke around your website again, and I noticed that the “Nasty Stuff” link doesn’t work. It gives an HTTP 403 error message, which although unpleasant, is not quite the same kind of “nasty” as the scandals that had been described there before.
