For many of you, it isn’t news that the Summer Solstice Girl is a geek.
I have a strong background in science and at some point I was considering going into Astrophysics. I was a member of the Astronomy Society in my home town and I even got published once for a little article I wrote on the Perseids Meteor Shower. I was a keynote speaker for a National Amateur Astronomer Conference too. Good times.
I heart physics. I am also a James Bond movies fan. So, as it happens often in life, the universe conspires to make you smile. I was already in the middle of writing this post when something else happened. So I decided to change the original title of the post from “Quantum Physics and Lindy Hop? Hell yeah!” to what it is now.
My little Solstice heart got very happy when my friend Krister Shalm – a fellow scientist AND Lindy Hopper, decided to use Lindy Hop to explain a particular problem in quantum physics. In fact, I was
happy delighted to the point of being ridiculous. Yes, the SSG very often makes a fool of herself. Cause the SSG doesn’t take herself too seriously. And that’s why the SSG has SO much fun all the time!
Anyway, my friend’s TEDx talk is FINALLY on YouTube. And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t blog about it.
The full TEDxWaterloo talk that unveils Project Q. Skip to 13:10 for the start of the dance routine.
