This is golden! Now, one for measure theory and functional analysis please!
 
Uber, but for Topological Spaces: "Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just order up a space that was path connected but not locally connected?" Now there's an app for that! http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/roots-of-unity/2015/02/28/uber-but-for-topological-spaces/
So it’s cold and rainy, and you’re up a little too late trying to figure out why that one pesky assumption is necessary in a theorem. ...

This used to be called WriteLaTeX. One big improvement: references and citations can now be inserted from a drop-down menu that pops up as soon as you type \ref{ or \cite{...

Yeah, none of these are ideal. I should confess that I've never used any of these to actually get work done but I'd be sorely tempted by authorea the next time I co-author something with people that are either not so great with LaTeX or unfamiliar with version control. I'm sick of having to manually diff documents just to see what other people have done with them and the usual "paper final.tex", "paper even more final.tex", "paper the finalest.tex" habit. So sick that I'd be perfectly happy with sacrificing some of the comforts of your LaTeXTools if it allowed my co-authors to use a rich-text editor like authorea and me to use Markdown, knitr and some of these other recent developments.

Theoretical economist, ardent TeXnician, tech enthusiast
Introduction
Hi! I am an academic economist; I teach microeconomics, and do research in the fields of game and decision theory. These are the nuts and bolts of economic and social behavior; I believe that, by advancing our understanding of these basic building blocks, we can make a bit more sense of the "blooming, buzzing confusion" of the environment we live in.

I find technology and computers fascinating. I can code a bit, and have made (very) very small contributions to some open-source and community projects.

Amazing panini--quality ingredients, imaginative recipes. A hidden gem!

A hidden gem. Amazing, friendly service; we went back after a year, and the staff remembered about our kids' allergies. Traditionally prepared seafood, with a few surprises. Try the Antipasto 500 (a selection of fish appetizers)... which could be a meal by itself! But also try the Chitarra pasta.

Decent option for lunch (or dinner). Food is reasonably authentic; we had a variety of pasta dishes (tagliatelle, ravioli and stracci), and while I would say that on average it was not quite "al dente", it wasn't a disaster either. Interesting sauces, excellent burrata. Overall, not the best option for Italian food in town, but reasonable if you're downtown.

This is *the* place to go if you want seriously authentic Italian cuisine. The only downside is that the menu is not particularly extensive, BUT it's absolutely authentic and top quality. Highly recommended.

A sadly too short 4-day trip. The snow is amazing, living up to the considerable hype. Great variety of runs. We stayed at the Sheraton, which is not a luxury resort by any means, but it's ski in, ski out, which rocks.
