TechXav - a student-run tech blog

By Murray Bourne, 28 Oct 2009

I'm impressed with this: TechXav.

It's a blog run by a group of 14 and 15 year-olds offering "the latest Web 2.0 start-ups and technology news."

The international writers come from Singapore, Chile, USA and Malaysia and produce a slick and popular product. It is a nice demonstration of how people from around the world can collaborate on something they find meaningful. I'll use it as an example when doing e-learning training.

I picked up a math-related tip written by one of the main bloggers, Xavier Lur: Your Handy Web 2.0 Scientific Calculator, which points to Web2.0Calc. It is indeed a neat online calculator.

Good luck, TechXav guys!

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.
