Tonight we had a “meeting of the blogs” (Casting Out Nines, Natural Blogarithms, and Teaching College Math) – actually there were five of us (Rose and Jeannine tagged along too). We had a great dinner at Casa Rio, complete with Mariachi band (thanks Jeannine) … see Casting Out Nines for the video of our Mariachi song with a modern twist.

(I just realized that I don’t have the cable to connect my new camera to the computer – I thought it was the same cable that my TI-84 calculator uses, but I was wrong… so no pictures … if any of you are at ICTCM and have a Fujifilm Finepix camera, can I borrow your connection cable for about 15 minutes?)

Together, the five of us contemplated all sorts of technology issues, plotted how we are going to influence math technology through the collective and social power of the Internet, and made predictions about where some math-related companies will be a few years from now (actually, we think a few companies may be making themselves obsolete, but I won’t go into details here). I’ve sent an email to myself three years from now using FutureMe and in 2011 we’ll see if any of our predictions come true.

Here’s to a larger “Meeting of the Blogs” next year! (not in girth, but in cardinality)
