Those seeking a fresh, inside look the string brouhaha should check out the post of my colleague Jim Weatherall on the blog of the Center for Science Writings. Jim just got a masters in physics from Harvard (after getting a bachelor's in philosophy--perfect preparation) and knows some of the pluckers there, including appealing Lisa Randall and appalling Lubos Motl. Jim’s post has already provoked responses from, among others, Peter Woit, author of Not Even Wrong, my interview with whom you can also find on our site (Jim filmed us). If that’s not enough string stuff for you, come watch me debate The End of Science with the string enthusiast Michio Kaku October 18 at Stevens. This will be my last post on string theory for a while. To paraphrase Jim, this pathetic excuse for a theory has gotten much more attention than it merits. Upcoming posts will address more credible endeavors, such as parapsychology.
