Most of the internet is full of people quarreling about abortion, gun-control, and the middle-east. I'm quite proud to inhabit a corner of the web where people rage about such matters as what happens when you try add up all the positive integers from 1 to infinity.

In case you somehow missed that whole kerfuffle,  +The Aperiodical  now has a comprehensive round-up of the various insults that people flung at each other for not fully understanding the difference between Ramanujan summation and convergence, goddammit.

"I asked in the previous post for suggestions of iPad apps that I could use to help with my job as a university lecturer in mathematics. I asked specifically about annotating PDF files I had made using LaTeX and recording such activity. More generally, I asked what other apps might be useful to my job and for other uses I should be thinking about. People made suggestions via comments on that post, Twitter and Google+. Thanks to all who responded. Here is a summary of the recommendations I received."

"New game, everyone! Work have bought me an iPad. I have so far discovered this is basically a touch screen interface through which I can write email, read Twitter and play pinball, but I’ve heard a rumour that it can do even more than that. I’d like you to suggest what else I might do with it."

Please read the blog post for more detail and some vague parameters.
