As my friend Rajan Parrikar wrote when he sent me the link to Microsoft’s Project Tuva, “What times we live in that all of this is now at our fingertips.”
If you end up watching Richard Feynman’s lectures posted on Project Tuva and neglecting your work, don’t blame me; blame Microsoft or even Feynman. In any case, it is always delightful and instructive to virtually attend the great man’s lectures.
What thrills me about this is how this technology makes learning on the web so much more efficient and effective. You will find a nice write up about the lectures at PROBLOG.
