I've just discovered something incredible: Jim Fowler has compiled TikZ to WebAssembly! That means you can render TikZ diagrams in web pages, **on the fly**!!
I've made a demo page with an editor, so you can see it and believe it: https://tikzjax-demo.glitch.me

Mathematicians Abigail Thompson and Izabella Laba on mandatory diversity statements: https://www.ams.org/journals/notices/201911/rnoti-p1778.pdf and https://ilaba.wordpress.com/2019/12/01/diversity-statements/ (via https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2019/11/19/mathematician-comes-out-against-mandatory-diversity-statements-while-others-say-they and https://mathstodon.xyz/@pkra/103237286846736065)
Thompson sees mandated loyalty to political positions (such as prioritizing diversity) as anti-academic freedom. Laba disagrees but prefers institutional action to lip-service statements of good intentions, and argues that unrealistic expectations on faculty benefit men with uncredited wife assistants.

legos, internet +
The kids getting interested in our old legos gives this fantastic "internet is awesome" vibe.
* random fan sites about lego
* all the instructions ever
* lovely databases with parts info, reverse lookups
* fan-based instructions
* 3D printing for missing parts
* old sets for sale at ridiculous prices
It is glorious.
"When I was starting my first postdoc job, the then-chair of the department gave me a pep talk on how I should really pay attention to my teaching because that was going to be very important for my career. A few months later, I was placed in front of my first large calculus class [...] I could have done worse. I could have just explained to my students that calculus was very important, waited a little bit, and then administered the final exam."
I’ve been mulling over this post since I read it yesterday. One of the best things I’ve read this month. The agitprop tactics described aren’t exclusive to education.

I totally missed that Thorium Reader (formerly Readium-desktop) has finally some new releases. Nice!
