Hello World 08. 1.2015

This is my first post, and my first blog, on my brand new website. I made this site using Middleman and Bootstrap. Middleman makes it easier to flexibly build static sites, and Bootstrap helps make them beautiful—on any device. The code for the site is on my Github, though it (and its documentation) is still very much a work in progress.

Prior to writing these words, I made sure I could do this:

That is, that I could do math-mode, quite outside of a -specific environment; this is not a serious proposal for a semantics of exclaiming "Hello World!" I incorporated functionality in case I should want to say something about formal semantics on the blog, without sacrificing quite the beautiful way can say it.

You can do this too! Ultimately, it comes down to including MathJax in the <head>...</head> environment of your html (whether it's more complicated than this for you likely depends on how you set your site up):

    <script type="text/javascript"
      src="https://cdn.mathjax.org/mathjax/latest/MathJax.js?config=TeX-AMS-MML_HTMLorMML">
    </script>

We'll see if this whole blog thing works out. Meanwhile, welcome to my site! Follow the links at the top to learn more about what I do.
