I just have to share my amusement at the little connections in the universe. I wanted to point a class mate to The Algebra Project
, an organization that promotes mathematical literacy among poor and minority students, founded by Civil Rights Movement leaders. I went back to their website to check I still had the correct link, and guess where they're based? Bishop Allen Road, the same street in Cambridge where Christian Rudder and Justin Rice used to live and named their band after. Appropriate for the Algebra Project b/c Bishop Allen was a conductor on the Underground Railroad, and appropriate for Rudder because he was a math major at Harvard.
