FQXi awards – shameless self-promotion

OK, considering all that has gone wrong with my research in recent years, I figure I ought to have the right to brag at least once.  An essay I wrote was awarded a Third Prize by FQXi in the latest essay contest.  In the process, I managed to beat out Stephen Wolfram (yes, THAT Stephen Wolfram), among other well-known physicists, mathematicians, and philosophers.  The prize comes with a rather nice monetary award and membership in FQXi which includes a slew of quantum information people along with Nobel Laureates t’Hooft, Weinberg, and Wilczek.  I should add that I view this as a huge victory for small colleges like Saint Anselm, outreach organizations like ASNNE, and the Anacapa Society from which many of these ideas were spawned.

  1. I’m glad you made it through the review panel, and hope this will help to better articulate different physics fields together. Congratulations and continue on this path!

    Thanks Arjen and I’m sorry yours didn’t win something. I certainly enjoyed it! I just hope its recognition through this award gets more people to pay attention to the problem itself. I’m at a conference right now where this very problem is rearing its ugly head. The physicists and computer scientists are talking over each others’ heads.
