A Short But Pleasant Ride


Tucked into my Twitter feed was this bit from Spinger Mathematics. Springer publishes a lot of fine mathematics books, in both a line of yellow-covered texts and a line of blue-covered ones. The yellow ones are better, because mine had a yellow cover.

I grant that’s probably not very interesting to you. What interested me is that it appeared with the little “View Translation” icon in the upper right corner. “New! Mathematical Oncology 2013 by Alberto d’Onofrio & Alberto Gandolfi http://bit.ly/1FOQlSA ” was translated by Twitter as … “New! Mathematical Oncology 2013 by Alberto d’Onofrio & Alberto Gandolfi
http://bit.ly/1FOQlSA ”. I probably should have seen that coming, but I was glad to try it out too.

Meanwhile over on my mathematics blog there’s been another roundup of comic strips, including a couple that come from the studios of Johnny Hart. There’ll be another roundup this week, barring a real surprise. I’ll let you know.
