What’s your math secret?
[03 May 2012]
You may have heard of PostSecret.com.
Frank Warren started PostSecret by handing out self-addressed post cards to strangers on the street, and invited them to share whatever secret they liked. He was stunned with the response. More than half a million people have sent in postcards sharing all sorts of secrets about the lives, their loves and their activities.
What’s your Math Secret?
Since mathematics makes many people very emotional, here’s your chance to share your own secrets about your experiences with math (in the comments).
You don’t have to use your real name, of course (or even your real email, if you do, you can get updates and people add their own secrets. Either way, your email is not published.)
You are encouraged to use an image like the original PostSecret examples, but text is fine, too!
If you want to use your own image (450×450 px maximum), upload it to somewhere on the Web and then use this code to show it:

Warren spoke at TED SXSW recently about how the PostSecret concept started.

I’ve started by sharing my own secret.
