A Chinese new year greeting~

So this is the first day of the Chinese new year, classes/seminars still haven’t resumed since December 17th, still two weeks to go before anything starts…

Anyways, I’m borrowing this occasion to thank everyone for continuously supporting this blog! We’ve had a great year, check the annual report at the end of the post for details.

As some of you may already know, I have decided that mathematics is not going to be my life-long career. So far it’s not clear in which direction will this blog go, it’s simply too important to abandon. I guess only time would tell. However, expect changes.

Finally, a sketch I doodled up last night~ Happy Chinese new year!

(btw, for those who have seen me in winter, yes I’m waring that Klein bottle hat in the picture!)

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

    Well, that’s a loss to mathematics. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do instead.


    • Thanks a lot for the compliments~ (although way too flattering :-P)
      I’ll try my best in reaching the goal (which is to work for Pixar)!

      PS: I never said how exciting it was when I first saw your ‘like’ on that post! Thank you.


      • Pixar is an amazing company; I remember some fellow who worked there came and gave the mathematics department colloquium once in Berkeley (this was just after “Toy Story”). It was genuinely inspiring. Most importantly, they really care about art. Best of luck. :)


  2. Mathematics is of course a gateway to many careers! I am coming into mathematics after having my career as a systems analyst, which many mathematicians do for a living. Pixar is an amazing company and the work environment so fun! All the best to you.
