Math Blog from the Other Coast

An excellent mathematics-based blog has come across my (virtual) desk:

What's new

The diarist, Terence Tao, a professor in the Mathematics Department at UCLA, explores mostly his research and related issues, so some of the posts may be stratospheric and out of the reach of many math enthusiasts. But there are also posts with good air-pressure, and some excellent advice on math-related careers and writing techniques, as well as mathematical constructs and such. For instance, his latest post on the nature of "proof-by-contradiction" makes for excellent reading. Give it a try!

His main page has a lot of other interesting material as well...
