  1. Interesting. Perhaps he’s worth a look (actually, I think I’ve heard of him). The bio on his website, though, reminded me why being even remotely famous can be a drag. I already get e-mails from all sorts of people since I edit The Quantum Times, and the readership of that is only about 1000 or so people! People like Radin must just get flooded (of course, if you’re really famous you don’t publish your e-mail (or you have a private one).

  2. Given your blog’s name, you might be interested in this post on my blog, and the paper mentioned there:
