Brilliant.org has been featured in *The Atlantic*'s recent article entitled "The Math Revolution" by Peg Tyre!

The piece is about students' increasing mathematic appetites in the United States and around the world. Of course, we at Brilliant embody the spirit of mathematical growth so it was only fitting that *The Atlantic* reached out to us. As our own Julian Poon put it, "On Brilliant, people do not call themselves as brilliant, but instead, they all strive for one common goal: To be brilliant. Being brilliant is one thing, but striving to be brilliant, to constantly better oneself, is what it means to join this community."

TopNewestThis is very encouraging news. For years, decades even, it seemed like American students had a continually dismissive, sinking attitude towards mathematics. You know, "Who needs math now that we got smartphones?" attitude. I'm impressed that Brilliant.org is playing a significant role in this revival.

I think that now more than ever we need additional/advanced mathematics. Smartphone glued to faces would never last: we all know now how they feel all too empty and hollow. Mathematics feeds the soul.

What I know is that for a while everybody wanted to code apps for smartphones. Well, I think there's probably a million apps out there. I think the time now is ripe for a major industry shakeout.

Just today LIGO scientists announced the discovery of gravity waves. I don't ever recall being as excited with any smartphone app (except Brilliant.org). Mathematics really does feed the soul, Jake.
