Talking of Feynman reminded me that I saw this project @ Microsoft research: project Tuva is based on the silverlight player. (I am not into M$s products, but it’s freely available for all platforms and for the lectures really worth installing). As a kind of “proof of principle” they put on the “Messenger Lecture Series” Feynman held in 1964@Cornell University. Recorded by the BBC, Bill Gates bought it and it was made publicly available with a lot of additional information and links (especially on the first two lectures, later on the enthusiasm of the annotators seems to fade a bit).
One of my favourite parts is the 4th lecture (on symmetry in physical law) when Feynman mentions proteins – the farsightedness just blows me away: That’s exactly what we are still at, just 50 years later. Gives a bit of perspective, doesn’t it? Below is a link to the documentary “The Quest for Tannu Tuva”, containing one of the last interviews with him –
