# Happy anniversary

By Murray Bourne, 03 Nov 2005

SquareCircleZ is one year old.

One of my first rants was about learning - and I remain passionate about the need for reform of institutional education.

Looking back on this blog:

• The posts that got the most reaction were on √16 - how many answers?, my critical post on Heymath! and my Review on Game of School.
• The readers have been mainly from USA and Singapore.
• About 40% of readers use Internet Explorer and about 30% use Firefox. This has some significance and maybe shows that those who use Firefox are more Internet-savvy generally...?
• Spam is a huge problem. I get comment spam (rubbish comments which are full of links to sites selling on-line gambling or viagra) and also the sites with most links to me are adult sites. Thanks, but no thanks.
• Self-censorship is frustrating at times - there are many more things I'd like to say in this blog...

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.
