Are you still following/doing current research in physics? Can you summarize in no less than one sentence the “secret” of managing yourself and your resources to do all these projects?
I haven’t done much physics as such in about 4 years; I’ve been “distracted” by Wolfram|Alpha and all the things it makes possible. I’m hoping to get back to it soon, though. I do follow general things in physics, both by reading and by talking to people in the field. And typically I don’t have trouble reading the latest physics papers if I need to.
I guess I manage to do lots of projects because (a) I’m fairly efficient and organized, and (b) I have terrific people to work with at our company…
