Surely You Must Be Joking, Mr. Gates!

Bill Gates is offering you the Feynman lecture series “The Character of Physical Law” for free-as-in-beer (Silverlight required, but no sign-in!). In the intro, Gates explains:

“More than 20 years after first seeing them, these are still some of the best science lectures I’ve heard. Feynman worked hard during his life to popularize science, so I’m sure he’d be thrilled that now anyone, anywhere in the world, can just click a button and experience his lectures.”


This is your opportunity to access some life-changing lectures presented in a game-changing way.

Welcome to the future of learning.  Thank you Mr. Gates!

The online lecture includes “pop-up video”-type enhanced text:
