Two shouts, a Greek and Entanglement.

Hey all! First i want to recognize a few people who were kind enough to recognize me. Daniel Hurtubise, , my Revit Architecture go to guy and good friend/fellow Canadian. I follow his blog as best i can, since it is in French, and i am, after all, a lazy boy from Ontario. I promise i'll work on my french...and spanish...and german... etc. The next guy is David Harrington. David doubles as my editor at AUGIWorld magazine and also one of the many who shoot me emails with interesting 3ds MAX problems. Keeps me on my toes. You guys can check out his blog over at .
I love to read...and when i'm not reading i listen to audio books. In my car, at work, at home..whenever i can. So i picked up this random book...which i do from time to time. The title of it is "The Story of Philosophy by Will Durant". I'm only about a quarter of the way through it but it's really interesting. Its sort of a capture of the lives and times of some the greatest thinkers in human history. It's really interesting to read about Aristotle, the man. What he was like, what he did in his life...aside from the obvious. I like it so far so if anyone is interested in this type of stuff check it out....i'll probably give a few more comments about it when i finish it.
This brings me to the last sub topic. As i mentioned i love to read and listen to audiobooks. Well i just finished listening to a great one. Well i think its great anyway. Its a book about quantum entanglement but it goes through and gives a whos who and whats what of the development of quantum mechanics. The book is titled "Entanglement by Amir Aczel". Taken from the Penguin website:

Entanglement tells the astounding story of the scientists who set out to
complete Einstein's work. With accesible language and a highly entertaining
tone, Amir Aczel shows us a world where the improbable—from unbreakable codes to teleportation—becomes possible.

Now this might not be everyones cup of tea, but i love anything and everything related to this type of stuff. So having said all that, i am going to try and get some 3d related stuff up here in the next couple of posts. Stay tuned!
