A number of recent changes in the math blogosphere, perhaps worth mentioning:

**1)**

**blog is shutting down following the death of one of its founders, Jonathan Borwein:**

*Math Drudge*
…but (at a very similar URL) the new

**blog will carry on from David Bailey (the other co-founder of***Math Scholar***):***Math Drudge***2)**Antonio Cangiano announced that

**would be going on hiatus following a devastating fire interrupting his life:**

*Math Blog*
…although that was quickly followed by John McGowan saying he would take over administration of the blog for the interim (honestly, I had always thought McGowan was the principal administrator of this blog, which is among my favorites, so I’m not clear how big a change this is, or how mistaken I was?):

**3)**Jason Rosenhouse covered a lot more than just math at his long-running

**, and I always found him to be one of the clearest (and perhaps under-appreciated) explicators of math and science out there. So, quite sad to see him calling it quits after more than 10 years of elucidation:**

*Evolution Blog*
(hoping he’ll change his mind after some rest-and-relaxation)

Jason's “

**The Monty Hall Problem**” volume is MUST-reading, by the way, for anyone interested in that classic puzzle.
And his “

**Four Lives**” is MUST-reading for any Raymond Smullyan fans out there.
(just to mention two of his books)

Luckily Jason has more books on the way, but will still miss his succinct, well-reasoned blog-post musings.

There may well be some other blog changes worth mentioning that I’ve missed. Feel free to mention in the comments any you think worth passing along.

Thanks a lot for motivating. The collection of books stands at 155 now. My librarian is gracious enough to acquire most of them...
