Richard Feynman: "Tiny Machines" (1984)

Above, his lecture of October 25, 1984, updating and expanding on his now-classic December 29, 1959 address to the American Physical Society, "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom."

Screen Shot 2018-04-30 at 11.45.58 AM

They had me at the tagline.

Lots of interesting stuff here.

For me, the best part is the author interviews.

Among others: Susan Orlean, Martin Amis, Louis Begley, Vendela Vida, Susannah Breslin, T.C. Boyle, Richard Price, Frederick Busch, Jane Smiley, Michael Lewis, Robert Stone, April Smith, Joseph Epstein, Alan Lightman, Will Self, Ethan Canin, Gretel Ehrlich, Anthony Lane, Donna Tartt, Jim Crace, and many more.

Fair warning: there goes the day.
