Carnival of Mathematics #67 posted at Travels in a Mathematical World
There is a phenomenon I have observed: a carnival draws from the same circle or group of interlocking circles, and while the content is new each time, the faces are not. And I have observed this, sometimes to a greater extent, sometimes to a lesser, with the Carnival of Mathematics.
I like the regulars. Don’t get me wrong. But it was exciting this time to go to a brand new host, Travels in a Mathematical World, and find a brand new line-up.
Peter Rowlett, the blog’s owner, is an administrator and tech promoter/coordinator at a university at northern England. And he likes (and blogs about) math. A little esoteric. Interesting tidbits. I recognize and appreciate the generalness and the lack of hard focus. It’s fun.
And his carnival reflects that he is from far, and travels (ha ha) in a different circle. This is not the same carnival as all the others. (Plus, it has a snappy news theme). There’s a variety to look at, from blogs you’ve never heard of. It’s big. It’s exciting. Go. Look.
