Yep, that time of the week, running a little late.
Skipping Monday and Tuesday in a hurry, on Wednesday, the fate of VU Amsterdam’s geometry group gave rise to a heated debate on mathoverflow — should MO be tough on non-research questions or will its community embrace the responsibility to become a Q&A-forum for all aspects of the profession? Interesting times indeed.
Taking Saturday off, Sunday didn’t disappoint: Geometric Delights crocheted a dodecahedron pillow, Hydrobates explained the Hill equality, Andrew Gelman reviews Peter Huber’s new book on data analysis and Doron Zeilberger offered one of his inspiring (and controversial) opinions.
