<p>I've been a fan of <a href="http://www.geogebra.org/cms/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1">GeoGebra</a> since I saw a demonstration of it by Markus Hohenwarter as MSRI last year. It's a free (open-source), cross-platform (Java-based), dynamical geometry and algebra application.</p>
<p>The nice part about being java-based is you can export your GeoGebra worksheets to html with embedded java applets. And then with a bit of parameter munging you can upload them to your blog. The embedded applet can be as function as the application itself (a nice advantage to being free; it can't be stolen so there's no barrier to making it completely available).</p>
<p>The nice part about being open-source is that people can contribute to it as much as they want. Now in the works is a tool to export a GeoGebra worksheet to <a href="http://sourceforge.net/projects/pgf/">PGF/TikZ</a>, so you can put them in your LaTeX documents.</p>
