➡ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ hi all. it is with great pleasure to introduce this next guest and chat series and welcome a larger audience. Daniel Sank, Phd working at Google Martinis quantum computing lab is our 3rd guest speaker in a guest chat series hosted by the physics stackexchange site/ chat room. thanks to moderator David Z, Phd for the suggestion of the idea, coordination and graciously agreeing to hosting in his already well-attended biweekly chat sessions.
we have now hosted two prior events in series with great success with Samuel Lereah, Masters in physics, and yuggib, Phd math working in mathematical physics, thanks so much to these groundbreaking/ enthusiastic guest speakers for their particularly inspired/ dedicated participation.
the series has been a months long saga with many participating in many various/ diverse ways and contributing feedback (we welcome further contributors/ volunteers). (we have racked up dozens of community votes over more than half a dozen meta posts.) Daniel was instrumental in pushing forward the idea and designed our community ad, at time of writing about 200 hits from the main site. he was very attentive to and helped propose/ determine the format which is admittedly “still a work in progress” (much like reddit our software is not exactly designed for it in mind). thanks also to John Rennie for a 1st meeting summary and call for feedback.
SE chat has a sophisticated interface/ advanced features, lively cross-site participation and long history and full transcripts going back years are available.
SE management has recently engaged/ encouraged different/ novel/ creative/ increased uses of chat and we are one of the first sites to schedule mass public meetings with a special event/ guest speaker(s).
have participated myself on SE chat for several years and have met many very talented and accomplished professionals, academics, students, etc and am interested/ engaged in advancing the medium in general especially for open science purposes.
we studied Reddit AMAs some to structure our own meetings.[b] Reddit is the 800LB gorilla in the area and there is extraordinary attention/ momentum/ scale to their own events. notably they recently had a similar one on quantum computing. ours is just a fledgling start compared to theirs but we really appreciate their pioneering/ acclaimed efforts/ spirit/ continuation in the area. alas in most major human endeavors it is not without controversy and ours reflects that also (its a long story, and still yet lengthening every time!) another recent interesting angle maybe with some (entertaining! applied!) physics tie-in is , a robotwars competition team interview.
see all you physics enthusiasts/ aficionados/ lovers et al around! 😎 ❤
