Feynman Fan Club

After a fascinating discussion with Danny Hillis (left) and Craig Venter (middle) about the dichotomy of design and evolutionary search in both of their approaches to artificial life, I learned that Danny had hired Richard Feynman at Thinking Machines over a 7 year stretch of summer jobs. So we formed an ad-hoc fan club cluster and used our limbs to form a Feynman diagram of sub-atomic particles.
