Open source is now ready to directly compete with Mathematica for use in the classroom
When I think about what makes SageMath different, one of the most fundamental things is that it was created by people who use it every day.  It was created by people doing research math, by people teaching math at universities, and by computer programmers a...

Marvin Minsky is gone. I'm really shaken. What a mind he had, and what a nice man he was. I feel very privileged to have known him, even if only briefly, thirty years ago, to have heard his encouraging words and amazing ideas. I must go back and re-read his books. Long live Marvin Minsky.

Two computer science students “Make Python Great Again,” and, in the process, troll Trump beautifully.

Tonight I shook hands and spoke with Terry Roberts of the Little Rock Nine after his talk at +Lycoming College I hope some of his goodness rubbed off on me. What a fine example he is, what a fine message he has to deliver, what a good heart he has to have confronted evil with kindness.

Yesterday I picked up a hitchhiker, probably for the first time since 1987.  He reminded me of Dan Friedman, the teacher of teachers of programming language design.  Yoda, if you will.

I've hitch hiked twice, both times when I'd just made a big mistake in an otherwise well planned journey, and both times I was offered a lift by someone who realised where I was trying to walk was insane.  The second time was with Will, and we'd met the driver previously at a youth hostel, but the first time was just a guy who was unhappy at home so spent Sundays driving around in his pickup truck.  That time I was trying to walk over a city border so I could afford a cab to O'Hare with the cash I had on hand, but there was a big bridge in the way and it was windy and I had a guitar.

MIT Folks. If you had Hartley Rogers, Jr., for your intro calculus, or for multivariable calculus, or if he coached you in the Putnam Competition... His son, my Harvard classmate and crew captain, told me yesterday that Hartley passed away Friday morning, surrounded by family and love. I knew Hartley for the last 35 years, and we did many things together over those years, becoming good friends. I'm really going to miss him. And if you knew him, I imagine you will miss him too. He was one of kind, remarkably accomplished, humble and full of good cheer.
