Before it was a website, Ask A Mathematician / Ask A Physicist was two guys sitting in the desert at Burning Man, presuming to answer (almost) any question that happened to occur to whomever happened to appear at our stand.
We’ll be at burning man, and out of contact for the next week or so, so if it takes an especially long time for us to answer emails, it’s nothing personal.
We’ll be setting up a stand on August 31st and September 1st, from 1:00pm-4:00pm. So, if you’re going to be around, and you’d like to meet two people who actually write an honest-to-god web blog, then stop on by.
Here is the official description from the Burning Man events guide:
“Questions about the nature of reality, pi, infinity, primes, imaginary numbers, love, quantum theory, relativity, black holes, calculus etc? Come by! AAMAAP is about having access to a couple friendly people with math and physics backgrounds to answer questions that have been bothering you, or just a chance to soak in the vibe. The universe is a weird place. But not so weird that there aren’t any good answers to things! Location: 6:00 and walk a hundred yards toward the Man.”
