Alain Connes has joined the web as a member of the group weblog, Noncommutative Geometry. From a quick scan of the posts, it looks as if the other members are Arup, Masoud Khalkhali, and David Goss. (David Corfield mentioned the new site last week. The comment thread there features an interesting discussion of how mathematicians would rather be torn apart by wild dogs than be identified as members of someone else’s “school”.)
Terry Tao has started a solo weblog, Whatâ€™s new. I welcome everyone concerned to the world of weblogs, and congratulate them for making the wise choice of getting no real work done ever again.
