A rainbow of birds is flying in a hyperbolic manifold. Each one flies in a straight line, and initially, they form a tight single file. However, because of numerical precision errors, they quickly end up flying all over the place. #mathart (1/3) pic.twitter.com/i2zJ6KFScK

At the end of a recent online lecture, mathematician Giles Gardam dropped a bombshell: an 80-year-old conjecture about multiplicative inverses is false. My latest for @QuantaMagazine https://t.co/2WCAKIuhtg

Continuous line drawing. #TSPArt #mathart #orms

An "opti-meme".

The point set has 50,000 points. I obtained the tour with the Concorde TSP Solver's implementation of the
Lin-Kernighan heuristic, and I varied the edge thicknesses to heighten the contrast. pic.twitter.com/ivYmIOQpV9

Idea: A math conference/workshop where people teach/present non-math skills very relevant to being a mathematician (e.g. building a website, inkscape, math twitter selfie tips, etc...).
