    In an unusual post, Paul Dyson shows us what would happen when The Numbers go Social Networking. The links point to nice summaries of the different number types. Blog home: Math Nuggets.

  4. Oh my lord, I think I've wet myself!

    One of the nice ones at a site I had not seen before was a Facebook for numbers example at Math Nuggets which looks like a blog I will need to explore more in the future.
