Berlin, revisited

As promised yesterday, I uploaded and linked the rest of the photos from our trip to Berlin: day two, day three, day four. And once again, if you prefer all the photos without text, click here for the slideshow.

My favourite physicist

Forgot to post this link yesterday: A couple of days ago, there was a thread on MetaFilter I found interesting, of course mainly because of the link and the book that’s linked: Feynman’s letters. The Guardian had an article called ‘This is how science is done’ which quoted a few of the letters. More are available in the book called Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track: The Letters of Richard P. Feyman in the US or Don’t You Have Time To Think, The Letters of Richard P. Feynman, edited by Michelle Feynman, his daughter. The American edition seems to be out already, the British one is to be published on June 2nd.


Thanks to the weather that finally feels like spring again after lots of rain and cold, today’s postings are brought to you live from our balcony. Not quite a year ago I dreamed about websurfing on the balcony – now it’s a reality!
