I just read the greatest book: "Strongly Correlated Fermions and Bosons in Low-Dimensional Disordered Systems".  I couldn't put it down, had to read it in one sitting.  Here's a synopsis:

"Recent advances in material technology and low temperature techniques have led to the discovery of new physical phenomena. The topics included in this volume cover many exciting surprises found in novel nanostructures and low-dimensional devices of submicron size, including quantum interference and electron-electron interactions in transport in metals, semiconductors and superconductors, theories of the Luttinger liquid of electrons in carbon nanotubes, Wigner crystals in 2-D electronic systems, the Kondo effect in quantum dots in the Coulomb blockade regime, quantum chaos in ballistic and disordered microstructures, and mesoscopic effects in superconductors. Experimental papers cover the physics of the Kondo effect in 0-D devices, transport in 1-D nanotubes, magneto-optics of skyrmions and composite fermions in the quantum Hall regime, and a possible metal-insulator transition in 2-D electron and hole gases."

Now, if you could somehow blend this with "Unintended Consequences" you'd have a real book of the year.

Oh, like you know what any of that *means*!

If you do, in fact know what it means...

Geek!!

Can you fix that digital watch I had when I was kid?

I'll take Global Thermonuclear War for $400, Alex.

Go down to the basement and get me a bucket of neutrons.

Sounds like a lot of Quantum Physics, somehow in relation to metallurgy and electronics through the use of nanotecnology.

Maybe the title is supposed to be "how to build a better microchip".

No, but I *might* be able to set the clock on your VCR.  Not sure, but maybe. [:D]

Actually, I ran across this little gem while doing a search on half.com for a used copy of the big book about the FAL rifle.  Ran the title on amazon.com to get the synopsis.  I'm sure reading 2 pages of this would have the same narcotic effect as taking 10 valium or watching 5 seconds of a Keanu Reeves movie.

I read the synopsis and now I have a bloody nose and a headache. Time for a beer.

If you didn't read that for a class you need to get out more.

I'm waiting for the movie to come out on this one.

No, you'd have another Tom Clancy novel.[;D]

Travis McGee's [i]Enemies, Foreign & Domestic[/i]

Go to http://www.EnemiesForeignAndDomestic.com for more info.  McGee does a "cleaner" job than Unintended Consequences.
