Knot Home as a web app in macOS Sonoma

Thanks to Apple’s new macOS 14.0 every web app can be pulled into its own window and run like a native app. Which works perfectly well with our Knot Home prototype!

Interview about “Geometry Daily” on the Day of Mathematics Istanbul

It was pleasure to talk to Sarper Yurtseven at the Day of Mathematics Istanbul this morning! We talked about my Geometry Daily graphics, my process, inspirations and – or course – geometry. The 45 minutes were recorded and are available on YouTube: www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHp5UOlms-4*
