It would be interesting to set up a Mathematical Picture of the Day website.
Interesting and troublesome, it would require a lot of work to come up with exciting and varied content.
I am inspired by the Astronomical Picture of the Day, APOD.
The images there are magnificent, descriptions are interesting and content is stunning in many ways.

I feel, the MPOD version has to be user-generated, with a few editors approving the postings. Maybe it has to be MPOW, i.e. a weekly affair in the beginning. Mathematics could be as visually stunning and revealing as the astronomy.

Maybe this is a project for my another mathematical life 🙂
PS I stumbled upon this MPOD site, but the author seems to have stopped updating it. But the beginning looked good.
