Social media for mathematicians: Math Overflow

I wouldn't be surprised if ( research ) mathematicians were so ( Asperger / social anxious / Nerd / whatever buzzword you like ) that they stay away from Facebook. - The quality of Facebook is that you meet people that you wouldn't have met otherwise, because they are completely out of all the circles you are in. - Anyway, a place where research Mathematicians ask questions ( in a way programmers do for example ) is the site Math Overflow, it is set up like Stack Overflow, a well known site for programmers. Registration is open to anyone. Only questions on the graduate and research level though. No place to search for help with TMAs but a fascinating place to get a feel for what it is like on the frontline of our science.

Math Overflow ( Research )

Math Stack Exchange ( B.Sc. students )

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
