i just got back from a 20 mile bike ride, had lunch with the family and am now watching microsoft research project tuva – a series of videos about physics which inspired bill gates.  the first video starts with a 5 minute intro and then feynman begins:  “it’s odd, but on the infrequent occasions when i’ve been called upon in a formal place to play the bongo drums, the introducer never seems to find it necessary to mention that i also do theoretical physics.”

the lectures were posted using silverlight and there are links off to the right to learn more about what feynman is talking about.
