Richard Feynman at the Thinking Machines Corporation

The Long Now Foundation re-published an essay Daniel Hillis wrote for Physics Today: Richard Feynman and the Connection Machine.

And speaking of Feynman: One of my favourite quotes about teaching can be found in the foreword to his Lectures on Physics:

“The power of instruction is seldom of much efficacy except in those happy dispositions where it is almost superfluous.” Edward Gibbon.
