The BBC Horizon series has been inspirational for me over my life. For example, the programme Painting by Numbers was one of the main inspirations for my fascination with computers and graphics. (See my article about origin stories for more on this.)
This episode featuring Nobel-prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman is also inspiring, and I share it with you here.
A colleague recently shared this brilliant article from the ever-interesting Farnam Street blog about the Feynman Learning Technique.
