Some assorted things I’ve run across recently that may be of interest:
Talks from the annual meeting of the SLAC Users Organization.
A dialogue between Barry Mazur and Peter Pesic about imagination and mathematics.
An Op-Ed piece in today’s New York Times by my colleague Brian Greene called That Famous Equation and You.
Some sensible comments by John Baez about string theory.
A survey of the state of string field theory by Leonardo Rastelli.
A “description of some important issues in supersymmetry and string phenomenology” entitled Twenty-five Questions for String Theorists. The authors think these questions may have answers that will help connect string theory and phenomenology, although this seems to me unlikely. Serkan Cabi also has some comments on this paper.
An article about Feynman by Freeman Dyson in the latest New York Review of Books.
A talk about theoretical physics in the Netherlands.
Update: One more, a report by Paul Cook on an interesting talk by Roman Jackiw.
