Submission + - Developing a computerized adaptive Geek Test (bureau42.com)

fiziko writes: "I'm trying to develop a computerized adaptive geek test. Unlike the percentage scores on traditional geek tests, the final version will produce norm referenced "geek level" scores in a variety of geekdom's domains (Doctor Who, comics, computer science, math, physics, etc.) The framework I've developed for the initial norming seems to work well, but I'm lacking one critical piece: volume. If there's one thing Slashdot does well, it's sending large volumes of geekdom's best to the sites it links to."

Submission + - Quantum Physics for everybody (bureau42.com)

fiziko writes: Yes, it's blatant self-promotion. As those who subscribe to the "Sci-Fi News" slashbox may know, Bureau 42 has launched its first Summer School. This year, we're doing a nine part series (every Monday in July and August) taking readers from high school physics to graduate level physics, with no particular mathematical background required. Part one can be read here.
