File: BlogTopics [[[> See also: * RandomWritings. * ColinsBlog * ColinsBlog2010 * ColinsBlog2009 * ColinsBlog2008 * ColinsBlog2007 * ColinsBlogBefore2007 ]]] !! Blog Topics I'm starting to take this "blogging" thing more seriously, but I keep getting fleeting ideas for things to write about, and then when it comes time to write something I can never remember any of them. So this is where I'll put cryptic, and not so cryptic, notes about things I could/should write about: ********> * Monty Hall * 10 bucket, two choice variant * Richard Wiseman * Tanya * TheTuesdayBoy * Car/Key/Goat * Survivorship bias, startups, and Bayesian analysis. * Using a river to find the earth's radius * Fourier, the spring, the string, and the pendulum. * Glueing together the edges of squares * and other shapes * filling in holes * classifying surfaces * locally one-sided? ******** * Proof that | [0,1)^2 | == |[0,1)| * Not the interleaving, as that doesn't work * ... or use that one and fix it so it does work. * There exists a transcendental * Dedekind cuts * The Triangles * Hill-Climbing / Hill-Descending * Spikey Spheres * 1800-dimensional optimisation * Image approximation * The tension between explaining clearly, _ and helping to develop proof skills * Decision tree in business * RANT: developers should be made to use slow machines. ********< * http://rjlipton.wordpress.com/2009/04/18/cantors-non-diagonal-proof/ I did have more but, somewhat ironically, I can't remember them ... !!
