A proper blog post, of sorts

I’ve finished revamping the links on the right of the page into a set of recommendation articles by topic. I just need to blog something to push the list articles down the page content a bit.

As I was sorting the links into categories I found myself looking at Vi Hart’s channel for the first time in a while. (They don’t make many videos, but when they do…!) I was reminded of this truly wonderful project which they made with Henry Segerman, in which music, maths and visual art are combined in a genuinely satisfying way.
