d2r diego's weblog: June 10, 2004 Archives 
Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there! comPostDylan has released comPost, a bookmarklet to post to a variety of weblogging tools that integrates with Internet Explorer. He used it to post the announcement, so you know it works. Rockin'! Now, if I could only get it to work with FireFox, that would rock tenfold! :) ps: the name is... less than appealing. I get the pun, but I think a cool tool as this one is would spread faster with a cool name: "coolPost" sounds too obvious and probably too cheesy, "anyPost"... maybe. allPost? blogPost? lightPost? Anyway, you get the idea. Riemann proved?[via Slashdot] Purdue University has put out a press release noting that one of its mathematicians, Louis de Branges de Bourcia, has proven the Riemann Hypothesis. Here's the proof, and its defense (Note the word "Apology" in the title, which leads to a formal use of the word, as defined by the dictionary: "A formal justification or defense"). Hopefully I'll make time to read it all after the next release (more "Sunday entertainment"), in the meantime I've skimmed it and while of course I have no idea if he has proven the hypothesis or not, it certainly looks good. The Apology is excellent (as far as writing is concerned), with a brief history as intro. I guess we'll have to wait for a more formal peer review... Copyright © Diego Doval 20022011.
