January 28, 2006


As a follow-up to our meeting on Math and Media (28 January), a draft document is on the following web page:
Please, have a look at it, and email me your comments, suggestions about what to add, etc. I will keep updating the page. The idea is to produce a document that we will use to revisit the topic some time later and also to work on the issues raised.
