    Hi Tim, If you’ve an interest in Richard Feynman, ‘Project Tuva’ by Microsoft Research should be of interest.

      Thanks, I expect there are plenty with an interest in reading or seeing individuals with the confidence to speak out and own. You know where you are with them.

      I’ve had brief contact with the Caltech team. They are trying to make a good job of accessible presentation and it is good. Probably more on the way.

      Personally I don’t watch television yet for all the time that frees there are still too few hours for what can be done. Fenyman is for odd moments, time to get even.
