As an editor of The Aperiodical, I’ve been press-ganged into interrupting my holiday to write this month’s edition.</p>
<p>Before I start with the real submissions, I think I’ll abuse this bully pulpit to link to some of my recent blogging efforts. I <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/2012/06/a-huggermuggering-nonannouncement-of-an-overinvolved-knickknack/">found each letter’s favourite words</a>, recorded <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/2012/06/fibonacci-grids/">a video proving a nice fact about grids of fibonacci numbers</a>, and wrote an <a href="http://aperiodical.com/2012/05/aperiodical-round-up-7/">Aperiodical Round Up</a>. I also wrote <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/2012/06/instant-mathjax-preview-of-latex-typed-into-html-textareas/">a jQuery and WordPress plugin</a> to give blog commentors instant previews of LaTeX in their comments. You can try that in the comments section here, if you’d like.</p>
<p>Katie Steckles has submitted a few article from the Math Goes Pop! blog: <a href="http://www.mathgoespop.com/2012/05/math-in-books-math-puzzles.html">a review of the book <em>Math Puzzles</em></a>, <a href="http://www.mathgoespop.com/2012/06/giantsoffdef.html">some discussion of how you rank baseball teams</a>, and a guest post on CNN’s light years blog about how <a href="http://lightyears.blogs.cnn.com/2012/06/15/how-professors-dads-made-math-fun/">professors’ dads made math fun</a>. An anonymard has also sent in a piece from the same site on the <a href="http://www.mathgoespop.com/2012/06/a-rule-for-summer-lovin.html">half-your-age-plus-seven rule for finding a socially acceptable mate</a>.</p>
<p>Alexander Bogomolny has sent in a solution to a puzzle from the 2008 Moscow Olympiad, featuring <a href="http://www.mathteacherctk.com/blog/2012/05/a-crooked-polygon/">a crooked polygon</a>.</p>
<p>Colm Mulcahy wrote a very interesting article for his Maths Colm on The Aperiodical, musing on the question: <a href="http://aperiodical.com/2012/05/in-what-flipping-dimension-is-a-square-peg-in-a-round-hole-just-as-good-as-a-round-peg-in-a-square-hole/">In what flipping dimension is a square peg in a round hole just as good as a round peg in a square hole?</a> He has also written about <a href="http://aperiodical.com/2012/05/like-everybody-else-you-too-can-be-unique-just-keep-shuffling/">the mind-bogglingly huge number of ways there are of shuffling a deck of cards</a>.</p>
<p>Shecky R. has sent in <a href="http://math-frolic.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/proving-darwin-readin-chaitin.html">a review of Gregory Chaitin’s new book, <em>Proving Darwin</em></a>, about his algorithmic information theory.</p>
<p>Samuel Hansen wrote a great piece on his and Peter Rowlett’s<em> Second-Rate Minds</em> blog about <a href="http://minds.acmescience.com/2012/06/05/the-moment/">the moment that turned him “from a civilian into a mathematician”</a>.</p>
<p>Andrew Taylor muses on <a href="http://www.andrewt.net/blog/behindness/">the statistics of behindness in National Novel Writing Month</a>.</p>
<p>Peter Rowlett has written on his blog <em>Travels in a Mathematical World</em> asking <a href="http://travels.aperiodical.com/2012/06/historical-anniversaries-are-they-worth.html">whether anniversaries are worth celebrating</a>. A hint to how he feels might be found in the existence of the <a href="http://pulse-project.org/node/438">Math/Maths 100th episode/2nd birthday spectacular</a>.</p>
<p>Øistein Gjøvik lets loose some <a href="https://checkmyworking.com/2012/07/carnival-of-mathematics-88/%C3%98istein%20Gj%C3%B8vik">toilet thoughts on learning</a>.</p>
<p>Gianluigu Filippelli has written <a href="http://docmadhattan.fieldofscience.com/2012/06/turing-patterns-in-coats-and-sounds.html">a really great article about Alan Turing’s work on morphogeenesis</a>.</p>
<p>Finally, Peter Krautzbeger sent in his <a href="http://boolesrings.org/krautzberger/2012/06/27/11-dreams-for-the-publishing-debate-11-a-democratization-of-the-communities/">11 dreams for the publishing debate</a>.</p>
