New Notices

The August 07 issue of The Notices of the AMS appeared recently. They’ve recently redesigned the web interface and, to my pleased surprise, it’s no harder to use than it used to be. Congratulations. Now to go print off Martin Gardner’s review of Douglas Hofstadter’s new book

Oh, hey. Check it out. The letters page has some replies to this misguided opinion piece from a few months ago—more than the usual amount of math-wars stuff. Even more exciting: a piece on the Affordable Textbooks Campaign. The textbook racket has been a pet peeve of mine since back when I was a pro; at long last there appears to be some sort of critical mass of ticked-off faculty.
