If we want to fuel future growth and innovation in mathematics, three worlds must meet in the middle.
In 2009, we see three distinctly developed worlds:
- The Communities: Math + People = Associations, Publications, Journals, Groups, Departments (ASA, IMS, WFU Math, etc.)
- The Connectors: People + Technology = Social Media & Social Networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, iPhone Apps, etc.)
- The Foundations: Math + Technology = Software/Web Applications (Wolfram|Alpha, SAS, R, Matlab, Mathematica, Statistica, etc.)
In 2010, we need these three worlds to mold into one, unified experience. With whom does the responsibility lie and when does it start? You and now.
