Also please share any cool math-related resources you know — I want to learn as much as I can!

I figured it was about time to post an #introduction here. (Thanks again @christianp for inviting me!)

Hi! I'm Accio. I enjoy #math, #reading, #programming, #geocaching, and #boardgames. I am heavily considering a math-related career, so if you do math for your job, please share!

In my search to explore the lands of Mastodon, I have another account (@acciobooks).

Also, incomplete math project I did: https://mathwhiz.github.io/vectorpres/

Happy Birthday to M.C. Escher!

The robot walks up to me. "I need a hug."

I stand up and embrace it, absorb its excess heat into my body.

"You cool?"

"Cool now. Thank you."

Matt Parker has just launched https://psychic-pets.com and is looking for pets who might have powers.

Every time the World Cup rolls round there's a news story about some animal or other who's managed to predict every match so far. If Matt can get enough pets signed up, all making different predictions, maybe one of them will be proven right?

Sign up your pet! It'll be fun, helpful and *maybe* silly.

It's a bit new so if it breaks then tell bugs@psychic-pets.com

I just wished I knew how to make them myself.

Happy Birthday to Whitfield Diffie! (BS math MIT 1965)

Diffie invented a protocol for distributing cryptographic keys. Immediately after implementing this protocol, adoption of assymmetric cryptography picked up dramatically. He credits his wife, Mary, for his inspiration as well as the invention of a working public-key system.

His early life demonstrates the challenges of raising an exceptionally intelligent child. https://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/books/first/l/levy-crypto.html

I found a nice tool for looking up a LaTeX symbol; it lets you draw the symbol and then it attempts to guess which one you were trying to draw: http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html

Biggest #math problem: trying to google a mathematician and realizing there's a more famous person with the same name

"I'm impressed -- her gestures are pretty much what I'd expect from someone actually teaching this proof. Did they use a math double for this scene?"

I love this YouTube comment. I want to be a math stunt double in the movies too.
