4th Blog Anniversary

While posting frequency is at a historical low, as of today this blog has reached the four-year mark. Some of you will recall from previous posts that this blog shares a start date with Dinosaur Comics, which you should all be reading. (The recent strip about the standard kilogram was brilliant.)
Also, happy birthday to commenter JSpur!
Despite not posting here, I continue to post one photo per day over at my Flickr page; the Project 365 set now contains a month’s worth of photos, and I’ve geotagged them all so you can look at a map of where they were taken. (Right now the map is fairly uninteresting except perhaps zoomed in on Berkeley.)

    Hmmmm… this sort of geoposting would give an interesting way to study correlations between geographical data and social networks (for an appropriate data set).

    Happy birthday to you(r blog),
    you live in a zoo(r blog).
    You look like a monkey(r blog),
    and you smell like one too(r blog).
    I admit that didn’t work as well as I’d hoped, but sometimes you just have to run with it(r blog).

    Lemming: Thank you for the best gut-splitting laugh I’ve had all week :-)
    AG: I didn’t know that about the kilogram; thanks for pointing it out. I’m working with a kid who is really fascinated with measurement at the moment and he’ll be interested to know about that, too.

    Mason: I don’t think this kid is quite ready for that yet — I just got him through decimals and percents and we are starting algebra — but I’ll keep your suggestion in mind for future lessons. Of course, I would have to learn some quantum mechanics myself in order to teach it… :)

    Well, I was just picking up on the measurement idea.
    And of course, I’ve never given college students projects for which they weren’t ready. No misjudgements on my part, ever. (That said, I have an awesome team lined up for this summer—all of them will be future leaders in applied math and physics.)

    Monkey? Zoo?
    Thanks. I think.
    It is in fact my karmic destiny to have a birthday that is overshadowed by the following day phenomenon of an entire nation’s fixation on a large rodent’s, er, shadow.
