What is DC Physics
Actually, its who is DC Physics?
Hi, I'm Doug Craigen (aka "DC") - a former Acadia University physics professor (I've also taught
at the University of Winnipeg). I began making web pages about physics in the mid-90's. Some of
these grew very popular-particularly the humor and lists of textbook errata. However, the time has
come to rethink my physics pages. DC Physics represents their next evolution. DC Physics is located on
my company (DC Tech) web site so that the URL will stop jumping around the way the old ones did as
my ISP kept getting bought out by one company after another.
I wanted to have one of those friendly sites with a picture of myself, but aside from my
driver's licence (you don't want to see that!) the only recent one I could find was blurry with the sun glaring
off one side of my face and the other side hidden in the shadow. NO PROBLEM - all a physicist needs is a scanner
and some image processing software. However, I liked everthing I tried, so I've posted them all to the left plus
the original. See if you can determine which is the original unprocessed photo.
I get people writing to ask about connecting with Facebook, Linked In, etc. Yes, I can be found on social media
but as of fall 2012 it has still not overtaken my life. I keep my Facebook friends to people that I already know
from meeting in person... their security model doesn't leave me comfortable with much else.
So, if you're looking to learn more about me via social media check me out on
Google Circles. I'm going to give that a try
for broader connections as the security model looks better to me.
