So I have been gone for a bit, but I had a good excuse – it’s the end of my semester – and you know what comes at the end of the semester, don’t you? No no.. before the resting time.. No.. after the week of last-classes… Before the partying— yes! That’s right.
So, it seems like it’s going to be some quality time for me with Multivariable Calculus books (whoopie..), Electricity and Magnetism (<sigh>), and some computing books.
But! Fear not! I shall come back twice as strong and double the enthusiasm – and I have a few experiments already planned and ready for you. Also, I owe you a correction video for the last “sucking” experiment.
By the way, if you are also students and facing the end of your semesters and some final exams, I have a tip taht may save your day: MIT is giving out free education!
MIT Open Courseware is probably the greatest online reference for final-exam studying. Other than notes and summaries, they also have some courses with full video lecture series. My physics improved greatly after watching Walter Lewin’s “Electricity and Magnetism” lecture series.
I definitely recommend this for everyone!
Also, make sure you sign up for “The Amazing Meeting 6” (TAM6) – a great science and skepticism convention. This year the subject is “Modern Skepticism in the Internet Age”, so if you’re reading this (on the internet) you’re probably going to enjoy it. And of course, there are great presenters planned, like Dr Neil Degrasse Tyson, Dr Michael Shermer, PZ Myers (from “Pharyngula” blog), Phil Plait (The Bad Astronomer), Richard Saunders (“TANK Vodcast“) and more and more and more.
And of course, I’m coming too, so if you’re up for a beer (or a cup of coffee), send me a note to moo [at] smarterthanthat [dot] com
So – Sorry about that, but I will see you soon. I promise. Only a little bit to the end of finals (and I have 2 huge ones at the same week, egh)…
See you soon!
