# Friday math movie - Pivot, by Gary Flake

By Murray Bourne, 26 Mar 2010

Here's yet another interesting TED video.

This time Gary Flake takes us through Pivot, a tool with extraordinary potential for making sense of the huge amounts of information currently being generated.

You can download Pivot from Microsoft Labs here: Download Pivot (requires Windows Vista or Windows 7. Unfortunately, this download failed for me...)

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't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
