Timothy Gowers  
Blog by a Cambridge University professor interested in analysis, combinatorics, arithmetic combinatorics, and "general questions about mathematics, and how it is discovered and transmitted  hence this blog." Posts, which date back to September, 2007 and include categories such as "Demystifying proofs," have included "One way of looking at Cauchy's theorem," "Erdös's discrepancy problem," "How to use Zorn's lemma," "A solution to an exposition problem," "DHJ (density HalesJewett)  the triangleremoval approach," "Elsevier  my part in its downfall," and "How should mathematics be taught to nonmathematicians?" and "How should logarithms be taught?" and "Help I'm stuck in my ivory tower!"
