This isn't a self-deprecating snipe or feigned humility. I did math for the first time when I was 29 years old. When I finally did it for the first time – at least, the first recorded time – I didn't know it had happened. It was six years later reading Paul Lockhart's excellent piece entitled, “A Mathematician's Lament” that I realized what I'd done; I'd finally done math all those years ago.
