Los Geeks de la Playa
Below is an old spring break photo from back in the day – Cozumel when it was a sleepy little island. In the picture are 3 Caltech grads, 3 MIT PhDs (two in theoretical astrophysics, one in plasma physics), 1 former quant (now back in academia), a managing director still on the Street and a developer of fMRI imaging software. No, none of us are gay – that’s just spring break giddiness you’re looking at :-) The guy on the far left ate the worm. The geekiest guy of all didn’t show up – he went to the APS meeting or something at the last minute, I can’t recall exactly. I think we were listening to La Isla Bonita the whole time!
