Hello and welcome! This is a continuation of a blog that was formerly a component of my other website, *Infinite Descent*, whose main purpose was (and is) to serve as a base for my textbook-in-progress, *An infinite descent into pure mathematics*.

With the end of my PhD and the beginning of my first ‘real job’ as a lecturer in sight—which will allow me to work more closely on the book—now seemed like a good point to split off the content that does not directly relate to the book itself.

As you might have guessed, this is primarily a blog about mathematics. (The .coffee part of the name is one of many new gTLDs introduced in 2014, and I was amazed to discover that this particular domain name wasn’t taken.) With that said, I might at times post about other things. I have no master plan.

I have a vague idea that I would like to accept guest posts on the blog, particularly from like-minded mathematicians, scholars of teaching and learning, and even students. If there is something you think would fit in well with the blog’s content, please get in touch by sending an email to **clive at math dot coffee**.
