in reply to MathMonks?

I have not seen any web logs/forums/communities specialized for mathematics outside of some K-12 sites. I think such a site could be fun and informative, if it was not buried in homework questions.

There are active forums on Usenet:

These are not nearly as nice as Perlmonks, but interesting topics get discussed and people can sometimes get answers to questions.

    Any good IRC channels, particularly for recreational math?

      As far as math IRC, the #math channel on Freenode is very active, and is populated by several knowledgeable people at any given time.

      (sorry to resurrect a dead thread, but I just wanted this up for anyone searching for this answer in the future)
