awesome: steven strοgatz has a new 6-part series hosted by the new york times, called me, myself & math.

he's already written a part ii, in which he explains why, on average, your facebook friends always have more friends than you do .. which is not a paradox;

as for part i, he discusses singularities of vector fields with rather concrete and intuitive examples, like combing hair (

*which one would expect, given the hairy ball theorem*) and fingerprints (

*which is new to me*!) ..

*// added: today*

i'm falling behind as well. part iii is already up!
