more SECRETS that mathematicians don't want YOU to KNOW:
* generalization was invented by Nicolas Bourbaki. it was named in honour of his grandfather, General Charles-Denis Bourbaki.
* Nicolas Bourbaki also invented condensed milk, singular they and the symbol "="
* the only prime number divisible by 3 and 19 is 57
* category theory doesn't mean anything, it was invented solely to generate cool looking drawings (e.g. when having your photo taken in front of a blackboard)
SECRETS that mathematicians don't want YOU to KNOW:
* nobody actually knows what a "set" is but everyone is too scared to admit it
* "quantum computing" is latin for "trying all possibilities at the same time"
* Gauß was a time traveller, Euler stole proofs from aliens, Erdős just did tons of drugs
* all of mathematics is basically a competition who can name the largest number. if your record stands for 1 month you get a "conjecture", for 1 year a 'theorem"
Only after reading 2 editions of Lisp machine manuals and half a Forth book before I realized that the reason C did not have an IDE (in the way that old LISP or FORTH did) is that, essentially, Unix is that IDE.
Finally at home and listening to your archive from anonradio! :-)
It's not quite 6am here. Great way to start my first day back at work!
I am now #DJ @guofu!! I reserved a time slot on @SDF #anonradio. Sunday at 0000 UTC. guofu's copacetic #music hour. The first #episode will be dedicated to the late great #Cuban bassist Israel "Cachao" Lopez. I may add another hour a week or broadcast reruns to @tilderadio
i have a few questions about learning. i bought a stringed instrument called tambur, a few months ago. without a teacher i studied up to now.
- do you think there is a wrong way to play & learn to play an instrument? if so, is it easy to rectify the mislearned methods?
- i have no particular reason to learn with or without a teacher. do you think it is crucial to have a teacher? or the other way around, do you think there is indispensable elements of self-learning?
@SDF made me realize my server has been doing nothing other than hosting my blog, for almost a year. oh machine, little machine! i'm gonna overwhelm you. i have to go to sleep now, though.
