Why I am blogging and why wordpress

Over the last few years, I have seriously been thinking about starting a web log.

There are 2 main reasons why I want to blog:

1. I want a single place where I can post my physics ideas (and more generally, math and science related issues). Not all peer reviewed journals are open to all readers. Moreover, journals are not ideal for trial balloons and for open ended discussions, etc.

2. I would like to blog about memories, anecdotes, autobiographical details, and pseudo-random thoughts. (Does real randomness exist?)

Why wordpress?

In a word: \LaTeX !!

\LaTeX is simply Am^az_ing in what it can do and I have published many articles and even books using this amazing software.

With this first post, I inaugurate this new blog!
