Is there an entire function $f:\mathbb C\rightarrow\mathbb C$ such that for some $\delta>0$: $f(z)$ is bounded when $\Re z>1+\delta$; $f(z)$ is unbounded when $\Re z=1$; $f(z)$ grows polynomiall...

Great idea! You should post it.
You'd need bounds on the number of such zeros in intervals though. If you had a bounded number then you could get rid of these. Unfortunately I can't tell if you can do something given the Lindelof bound of o(log T); it's worth thinking about.
In the end you may just need to construct an artificial sequence of roots that are sufficiently regular at one scale but irregular at a slightly smaller scale.

Social networks seem to be getting progressively more annoying, so a few of us put together this site that is simply a Wiki profile page for each registered person, in the hopes it will make it easier again to find the basic info on someone.

Looks like a pretty exhaustive list given the criteria. :-)

The last lecture was quite interesting and well summarised on this blog. Excerpt:
"too often in the race to compete, we learn to confuse what is hard with what is valuable. Intense competition makes things hard because you just beat heads with other people. The intensity of competition becomes a proxy for value. But value is a different question entirely. And to the extent it’s not there, you’re competing just for the sake of competition. Henry Kissinger’s anti-academic line aptly describes the conflation of difficulty and value: in academia at least, the battles are so fierce because the stakes are so small."

$50m to shut down a program that costs $2m annually and advances science. Harper is an idiot.

Focus group studies show that oxymorons are in right now!

All recent papers posted to the Arxiv, now with a reddit-based interface. Each day it will update the list with the latest papers and you can upvote, downvote, comment, save links of interest, search, post new links, or create your own communities/arxalivs to post in or have others post links or writings of interest to them. You can de facto implement a journal this way with the editors/reviewers as the moderators.
