Map Energy Time Uncertainty To Being HUMAN Rather Than SPECTROSCOPY:

Excited states have a finite lifetime. By the time-energy uncertainty principle, they do not have a definite energy, and each time they decay the energy they release is slightly different. The average energy of the outgoing photon has a peak at the theoretical energy of the state, but the distribution has a finite width called […]

Free And Open Culture Mind Map

My passion: to empower some free-culture advocating, network-neutrality loving, FLOSS using, empathy having, critical thinking art students. Today we did a bit of brainstorming about what influences/passions can guide us as a group toward a collaborative project.

I from 1997-1999 I worked at the Paleontological Research Institution as a collections assistant before the Museum of the Earth was complete. I spent my days scrubbing 375 million year old fossils from the Devonian period.  I highly respect my peers who study science.  Below are a few selected gems of the outreach article published […]

Pete Ippel’s Art show Featured in SFweekly

I got a really nice writeup Wednesday in the SFWeekly…Thanks to Hiya Swanhuyser for the article. Pete Ippel is a modern exponent of a long-standing tradition: the bro artist. Think of athlete-philosophers like Jack Kerouac, Richie Tenenbaum, both Jack Johnsons, or Muhammad Ali…Ippel surfs, plays basketball, and his video work explores issues such as hands-free […]
