I haven’t written here in quite a while—I’ve switched into “work on research for my dissertation really hard so that I can actually graduate” mode, and with a 21-month old in the mix that leaves very little time for blogging. Still, I do plan to continue writing some here, hopefully more as I get into some new rhythms of life. And I’ve got some exciting factorization diagrams-related projects up my sleeve, so you can look forward to that too.
For today though, just a link (I don’t remember where I first saw it):
This is a super-fun game with a very simple interface, where you are challenged to construct various things (polygons, circle packings, etc.) using only straightedge and compass, in the finest tradition of the ancient Greeks. It’s like eighth grade geometry class all over again, except fun. I’ve completed 26 of the 40 challenges so far — how many can you do?
