The Knot Atlas
The link love just keeps coming! At Secret Blogging Seminar, Scott Morrison makes a plug for the Knot Atlas. It looks like it’s starting with the information from BarNatan’s knot table that I’ve linked to before, but now in wiki form. Joy!

About this weblog
This is mainly an expository blath, with occasional highlevel excursions, humorous observations, rants, and musings. The mainline exposition should be accessible to the “Generally Interested Lay Audience”, as long as you trace the links back towards the basics. Check the sidebar for specific topics (under “Categories”).
I’m in the process of tweaking some aspects of the site to make it easier to refer back to older topics, so try to make the best of it for now.

Actually, the (wikified) Knot Atlas itself has been around for a while now — two years, I think! We never advertised it particularly well, however.
Contributions are very welcome. In fact, our dream is that one day no one would claim to have defined an interesting new knot invariant without having contributed at least the first few calculations to the Knot Atlas, and hopefully the algorithm too.
