    Since you brought up the symmedian point, here are some links to when we discussed this back in December 2010.

    Following up on Herbert's post,   Herbert has a nice geometric proof that the symmedian point (Gergonne point) (see http://math.wikia.com/wiki/Inscribed_circle) is the "least-squares" position. As shown in the attachment, it is found by (1) drawing the in-circle, (2) marking the points where the circle is tangent to the triangle's sides, (3) drawing a line from each vertex of the triangle to the opposite sides tangent point, (4) noting the intersection of these lines is the symmedian point.
