Oh wow, very cool.  TEDxCaltech (http://tedxcaltech.com/):

On Friday, 14 January 2011, Caltech is hosting TEDxCaltech, an exciting one-day event to honor Richard Feynman—Nobel Laureate, Caltech physics professor, iconoclast, visionary, and all-around “curious character.” You won’t want to miss a minute. Stay tuned for more details.

Oh I would absolutely love to see this. And, “Dear organizers, Please make sure Scott Aaronson is one of your speakers as he is clearly the Richard Feynman of the modern era (without the bongos, I think.)”

  1. I thought Scott was the optimizer, the shtetl optimizer. He could be the Feynmanizer. He may yet pick up the bongos . . . ya never know! 🙂

  2. Hm, Ray not sure what to make of your comment or of the fact that there are so many thumbs up votes for it. It must be that the anonymous thugs from the computational complexity blog are trolling.
