Yesterday I was driving up to Northeim to pick up some Sandkastensand (because people had actually cleaned out the other store’s 150 25kg packs — are you kidding me). While in my car, I was listening to this conversation on DLF, featuring a writer notable…

Just did buy Sandkastensand myself today. In a professional Baustoff supplier they sell it for 1/8th of the prize that I have seen that 25 kg packs. One just needs to bring some suitable container and not be shocked when they hand you the shovel to fill it yourself.

At the end of last year, I tried to motivate myself to write more so I set myself a tiny blogging challenge: writeo one post each week for the remaining weeks of the year, don’t spend more than for 30mins per post. It didn’t really work out but perhaps in…

If you're looking for a [possibly] easier blogging challenge, I suggest you do a series on "How high school teachers can get students marking up math".  It would definitely make my life easier!

Ah, the publishing industry uses it? I had no idea. And Word – i throw a fit every time I am forced to use it, which helps explain my ignorance on that front, I suppose. I do use MathJax (a lot), and I was aware that it can produce MathML, but didn't know it uses it internally. I am not sure that means it qualifies as a MathML authoring tool, however – in the way that a car is not a tool for burning fuel in a cylinder with a moving piston, if you get my drift. But I learned a lot from your response, and the list you linked to looks useful. Thank you.

dotAstronomy [This is week 4 of the challenge. woohoo.] Today I only have ~15 min. This week, I happen to be in Chicago for dotAstronomy 6. This might be odd since I’m not an astronomer (nowhere near in fact). It is actually an immense privilege, though,…

[This is week 3 of the challenge. Ok, I’m stretching “every week” a bit here. I blame somebody’s first cold or alternatively Turkeys. Also, I cheated; this took longer than 30mins.] Darth Vader/Stewie: Oh, come on, Luke, come join the Dark Side! It’s…

On the other hand, I think that my comment is pertinent to your point.  You appear to set up a variety of dichotomies, one of which is LaTeX vs MathML.  I think this is a false dichotomy because I can author my MathML in LaTeX.  It seems as though you've spent too long in the MathJaX team and are beginning to think of LaTeX as an output format.

More generally, your argument for ePub vs PDF really feels like "I like webpages, I don't like paper".  There are times when the flexibility of the web is great, and there are times when the rigidity of paper is perfect.  Not every document has to have that whizz-bang feel.

(Week 1 of the challenge. Sorry for those looking for TeX/MathML related stuff. Sometimes, there are more important things, you know?) 25 years ago today, the wall fell in Berlin, opening up Germany, opening up Europe. Admittedly, I don’t remember much…

Very much appreciate your remarks about this place. I really should see it myself since I've read so much about its storied pre-1933 past.

I don't know any way to petition Google+ I'm afraid.

It’s been quiet around here — too much work behind the scenes — BUT you can still read some of my usual incessant babbling over at the Wiley Exchanges Blog where I write about MathML and its role in Making math and science first class citizen’s on the web.

[This is week 6~7? Mpf, I missed one (and a half?), bummer. I’ll try to make up for it.] When I started this writing challenge, I had listed a couple of potential blog post titles. One of them was “Why you should care about MathML”. I realized later that…

[week 4 of the challenge. It’s time for a quick post to catch up after last week’s delay.] As you know, this blogging challenge of mine is based on the observation that I would like to write more. And then Jeff Atwood reminds me in this interesting piece…

(Week 2 of the challenge.) LaTeX is the path to the dark side. LaTeX leads to TeX. TeX leads to DVI. DVI leads to suffering. — not Yoda. Ever since joining MathJax, MathML has been a major part of my professional life. It’s a slightly unhealthy…
