Here is my monthly review video for December 2016. It was a fairly quiet month in terms of tuition because of Christmas and New Year; not much maths-y stuff going on but there was still plenty happening in other areas.

So in this video I talk about my new toy – a Moyu Hualong speedcube. I love this thing; I wouldn’t call myself a speedcuber but this is definitely giving me the nudge to learn to be one. I’ve always been a bit reluctant to go down the route of learning to be a speedcuber; the reason being that I didn’t think I was up to it because whenever I tried to speed things up with my Rubik’s Cube solving I could get to a certain point and then I would hit a brick wall at just under 1 minute. It turns out that there is a huge difference between a bog-standard Rubik’s Cube and a speedcube and I’ll show you in this video what those differences are and how they genuinely make a difference.

I’ll also talk a little bit about the books that I got round to reading which were

  • Born on a Blue Day – Daniel Tammet
  • The Real Rain Man Kim Peek – Fran Peek
  • 1984 – George Orwell

I’ll be doing another video next month and I think that I’ll have quite a bit to talk about in a month’s time because I’ve got a few projects that I’m working on so hopefully I’ll be able to give a bit of insight into what I’m up to. For the time being, though – Happy New Year and I’ll see you in next month’s video.
