Dot Physics

Hello, my name is


I feel like a just came to a new school, or a new place. Well, I have migrated servers before, so this shouldn’t be too bad. It really is nice to be here at ScienceBlogs. If you are unfamiliar with what I do, basically I can summarize:

  • Analyze stuff I see. This is usually from a TV show or a movie. I often will use video analysis and/or numerical calculations with python.
  • Explanation of basic physics concepts. I like to include diagrams.
  • Teaching and learning stuff. I like to teach, I like to learn. It is only natural that I talk about teaching and learning.
  • Science, the nature of science and people’s ideas about science.

Other than that, I plan to just continue what I had been doing before. I still have some setup to do, but hopefully I can get to business soon.
