Richard Feynman & The Connection Machine

A longish, but funny, informative and touching, article about a phenomenal mind and teacher.
After a hurried private discussion ("I don't know, you hired him..."), we informed Richard that his assignment would be to advise on the application of parallel processing to scientific problems.

"That sounds like a bunch of baloney," he said. "Give me something real to do."

So we sent him out to buy some office supplies.
