Best of the Web This Week 26/4/11

This seemed appropriate :)

Hi all,

This is the first in what will hopefully be a regular series, talking about the articles I've enjoyed from others in the Blogosphere over the last 7 days (although, in this case, it will be from the last 11, going back to Sat 16th April.)

Please bear in mind that these are other peoples blogs- there may be explicit language or "unsuitable for youngster" material on them, or in the comments sections.

This article kicked off various trains of thought for me, and as soon as I figure out how to make them coherent and readable, I'll be posting something here. In the meantime, read what Mercer thinks about Math-hammer, Theory -hammer, the dangers of them and how to best use them. Interesting stuff!
