How did you find out about Brilliant?

I'd love to hear from lots of people how they first found out about Brilliant. I'm a math teacher and think Brilliant is great. I heard about it from another teacher on Twitter. How about you?

Harshit, I agree...I also saw them ;)

If I remember correctly, I was led to Brilliant by an ad on a webpage about online courses. I'm glad that my browsing of the Internet brought me to this wonderful site.

I was bored and typed "www.mathematics.com" or something like that (I don't remember very well) and the first link was to this website. That is something I rarely do, but I feel lucky to find it : )
