Boogie Math is a collection of stories about a silly guy who likes mathematics. And how his family, friends, and neighbors see his ridiculous mathematical endeavors. It is stories about how he learns mathematics, how he uses mathematics in his daily work as an applied cryptographer, and how he teaches mathematics to his and his friends’ kids and his senior neighbors.

The guy’s name is Miha Stopar. He has a wife and three daughters, none of whom ever feel like listening to him (especially when he’s talking about mathematics). He spent his twenties writing a novel that nobody has read. He studied math and was 100% sure he would never work with computers. He ended up being a programmer. He now implements cryptographic protocols for Ethereum Foundation.

Advisory board

The silly website has a silly advisory board. The advisory board is supposed to help the project gain visibility and achieve some success. Well, the Boogie Math advisory board is a bit different – the two members keep trying to persuade the author to finally stop wasting his time working on a silly website and start working on something serious instead.

Vera is an all-rounder. Besides her native Slovenian language, she speaks German and Italian. Vera can fix leaking pipes and can easily kill and cook a chicken in 30 minutes. The only thing she knows nothing about is computer science. But this doesn’t stop her from having strong opinions about everything computer-related, and the funny thing is she is almost always right. She thinks Boogie Math is a glorious waste of time.

Andraž is the author’s brother-in-law. He is the CEO of a company that makes garden gnomes and mowers. As he likes to say: the best gnomes in the world. Well, the best mowers in the world too. Andraž thinks Boogie Math is a ludicrous mix of math and nonsense stories. Even so, he thinks the author should at least try to make some money out of it. You should try to make money out of everything, you know. He would like to see Boogie Math finally become a serious mathematical website. Whatever that means. He particularly dislikes the newsletter subscription text.
