From each month, the first sentence of the first post.
January: I decided on a whim to look in at the Dilbertblog, where the top post at the moment has Scott Adams calling all atheists that discuss on the net irrational, using a rather neat strawman carbon copy of most discussions of faith between believers (i.e. mostly Christians) and atheists he has seen on the web.
February: The second carnival of mathematics is up over at Good Math, Bad Math.
March: I just met up with the workgroup in the Deutsche Mathematikervereinigung (German Association of Mathematicians) with interest spanning “Information and Communication” – which turns out to mean that they care about libraries, about communicative tools for mathematicians, and spend their time thinking about these things, and meeting at conferences.
April: The website/forumsite Mathetreff, run by the Bezirksregierung (region government) Düsseldorf, just performed a mail interview with me.
May: In about 23 hours, I’ll step on to the train in Jena, heading for T’bilisi, Georgia.
June: Too harried to blog.
July: … or another bout of more-or-less shameless self-promotion.
August: Trying to make the time until my flight leaves tomorrow go by, I played around a bit with the proof assistant Coq.
September: No mathematical content today.
Note: The first september post consisted of a CAS interaction dump. Not fun to quote, so I took the second post.
October: In a conversation on IRC, I started prodding at low-order wreath products.
November: In a recent column at The Chronicle of Higher Education, the columnist writes:
December: I just received my first ever referee’s report.
In conclusion – living in Germany affects me adversely. The number of first sentences that span the entire first paragraph of the posts I’ve been looking at is staggering.
