Nice story about an MIT professor who is able to awe people with physics and has gained a global following as a result. My own take is that the world is filled with fascinating and compelling people, all of whom are far more interesting and engaging than the 14-year-old child singers the media seems to favour. Walter Lewin is quite rightly a rock star - and it is interesting to see that it is the people's media that makes that possible. Meanwhile, when the panderers at your local television station say, "but it's what people want," maybe nudge them toward the internet and say to them, "oh really?"
