A Museum of Mathematics - what a great idea! NYC .. 2012

http://momath.org/


“We need an institution like a Museum of Mathematics so people are aware of it and better serve their roles in society, whether it’s understanding a budget or even just the lottery. Right now, I think the lotteries are a tax on the mathematically illiterate, and people need to understand the risks they’re taking.”

— Glen Whitney, creator of MoMath in New York. Among the non-profit math museum’s 300 donors are Google, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and more, according to Bloomberg. The museum, three years in the making, is scheduled to open in 2012. A New York Times article in June notes that even though the museum isn’t open yet, Whitney — a former math professor and hedge funder — already sometimes gives math-themed walking tours.

Siddharth just ran a 5:49 mile! I wish I were 13 again. Well, that doesn't help .. I could never crack 6:00 anyway.

The Nawab of Pataudi slipped away from this world quietly. In their prime, he and his wife, Sharmila Tagore (the famous actress and grand-niece of Rabindranath Tagore), were elegantly symbolic of a bygone age, and yet very much at odds with the means and lifestyles of most Indians.

Steve, we're very sad, and you will be missed.

The story behind the photograph
http://pdnpulse.com/2011/10/steve-jobs-visionary-inventor-and-very-challenging-photo-subject.html

"Jobs gave Watson about an hour–much longer than he ever gave most photographers for a portrait session. “I had wanted to do the shot in a minimalistic way because I knew that was going to suit him very well. He said, ‘What do you want me to do?’ I said I would like 95 percent, almost 100 percent of eye contact with the camera, and I said, ‘Think about the next project you have on the table,’ and I asked him also to think about instances where people have challenged him.

“If you look at that shot, you can see the intensity. It was my intention that by looking at him, that you knew this guy was smart,” Watson says, adding, “I heard later that it was his favorite photograph of all time.”
