Gene Tan

By Murray Bourne, 03 Dec 2004

Gene (of National Library Board) gave his usual 'shameless' kind of presentation today for Life Sciences lecturers at my institution.

I expected shocked looks on audience faces - and I was not disappointed.

So why is he so creative? My take is that the National Library has not demotivated his enthusiasm for off-the-wall approaches. Most people are creative (and motivated to learn) but the situation they find themselves in destroys that motivation.

    True. But also because Gene Tan is just Gene Tan. Yeah, you can tell him I said that (it's a compliment!)

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
