What is ... math blogging?

This page hosts information on Felix Breuer's talk "What is ... math blogging?" at the "What is ...?" seminar. The talk will take place on Friday, January 28, 12:45pm at the BMS Loft at Urania. This talk will help you better understand the talk by Bernd Wegner, which will start at 2pm.

We will again be ordering delivery pizza. If you would like to order pizza with us, please arrive to the "What is ...?" seminar by 12:30.


Social media are omnipresent today! But what is the role of social media in mathematics? This question is still wide open and in this talk I want to give a glimpse of the developments in this area. The focus will lie on mathematical blogs, but mathoverflow, the polymath project and the use of blogs in other sciences will also be addressed. Moreover, I will use the opportunity to present Mathblogging.org (http://www.mathblogging.org) - an aggregator for mathematical blogs that can serve both as an index as well as a starting point for exploring the mathematical blogosphere.
