comment Contemporary Mathematical Columns in Magazines
@PooyaM yes, one could possibly misinterpret nostalgia and effectiveness in this context. But it does seem slightly amusing that an once popular style of (hands-on) recreational mathematics is more-or-less extinguished, despite the massive increase in the ability to target audiences. Just look at the (low) number of answers in this thread.
