Lubos Motl is an acquaintance of mine, a high functioning idiot savant whose considerable abilities in juggling mathematics and its application to merely theoretical physics contrast an obvious lack in grasping truly complex systems (say those with uncertainty about meaning or due to deception), a lack that is so severe, it not just makes Lubos a social misfit (which is fine by me), but it even taints his intuition about physics, as for example evidenced by his misinterpretations of certain quantum mechanics papers that did not claim what he claims they claim.  He could be a leading physicis
Aaron H. Swartz was one of the most outspoken and hands-on activists for the transparency movement, which I largely support. He was especially active with open access issues and copyright reform.  He was part of the team that built an early version of Reddit and the widely-used RSS protocol, which he worked on at age 14, and there is more to his name inspite of his young age.  But he committed suicide in New York last Friday. 
That black holes radiate Hawking radiation is almost established knowledge although Hawking radiation has not been experimentally confirmed.  Hawking radiation, as of now, is founded on the consistency of the thermodynamics of, for example, black holes.  Hawking radiation being also found around string theory black holes for example adds confidence.
Guilty feeling Germans doubting all, asking the profound and not accepting the silly answers, starting out thinking that science, physics is important.  Muhō decided to live as a homeless monk in a park in central Osaka in 2001.  Since then he sits, in order to sit, and he achieved perhaps more that way than all my science can ever do.

 

Write a critical article about how science careers, including your own, are destroyed and science is corrupted today; put it on a “science” site; get 2400 readers in three months and basically no reaction except for a so called “Institute of ETHICS and Emergent Technologies” still not wanting anything to do with you anymore since your last criticism of pseudo-science, when they and the rest of the “science” blogging community removed you from their sight.

 

Hey smart gals, you know that there are two types of nerds:  The creepy type you want nothing to do with, and the one you would like to have a go at, because they are damn smart too.  But you need to tell them apart real fast, like before the wrong type becomes your stalker, which happens with hyperspace velocity!  And yes, the type you want is rare.
