Write Down Your Moves in Juggling Notation

23rd December 2012

Colin Wright is a mathematician who in the 1980s helped develop a notation system for juggling while at Cambridge University.

He was frustrated that there was no way to write down juggling moves.

“There was a juggling move called Mills Mess and when I tried to write it down I couldn’t. When I finally did get a description after a few days of working, it took two and a half sides of A4 and I thought, for a juggling move that lasts one second there must be an easier way,” says Wright.
