I want some system that can help with collaborative mathematical problem solving.
 
@Chao google wave is ok
 
yes, and one can extend it.
 
it has suffiecient latex support and you can post articles
 
I'm think something more to the line of the proof tree system suggested by Gowers.
 
additionally the branched replies makes a really nice way to address specific messages
I am unfamiliar with that system
 
3:48 PM
The idea is given a problem, people can suggest approaches, each approach can become a branch of the tree. people can then chose a branch to work on, and branches more. Until it reaches something people are able to solve. so it seems like a proof tree system.
 
in my opinion, this can be achieved in wave
the problem orignally starts in one wave
ideas are proposed
people can discus each idea as a tangent to the proposition
when the idea becomes sufficiently fleshed out
move to another wave dedicated to it
everyone interested in working on it can jump into that wave
and this could be repeated as necissary
I see no reason why this wouldn't be satisfactory
my biggest issue with wave is the speed
at least when I was using it heavily
the servers were SLOW
 
Yes, it can be all built on google waves. My concern is no one around me want to adapt wave.
 
4:07 PM
adapt?
 
*adopt
 
oh hehe
sorry
I tend to think that asking them to get a google account is a lot less imposing than asking them to join some random site, or download/install some program
but that is my opinion
 
I think so too. I will investigate more on google wave.
