Dr. Michio Kaku's Forum

  1. Apr 21, 2006 #1
    In deep and dark nooks of the PF forum, I just found this subforum hidden behind some others. I'd like to post something but, since it's in the archive, should people post in there or it just simply stores what's old. And if so, where's the present Dr. Michio Kaku's Forum?

    I think PFs parted company from Dr kaku some time ago Heartless, so maybe the arxives are all that is left.

    What ever happened to him? I remember he had a Q&A one time when I first joined PF a while back.

    Was it not that he did not follow ths MS views, a sort of possible lever against PFs, so a parting of the ways was (agreed) i think it was for the
    best, heck i get confused enough all ready.

    Yeah, but we banned him for being a crackpot.

    What was his nickname?

    In what respect? I was looking at his bio, top student at harvard undergrad 68' phd in radiation physics. Those are pretty respectable credentials. Is he a crackpot because he does string theory?

    Zz was just being playful. Dr. Kaku is not regarded as a crackpot obviously.

    A couple years back we had a deal with him that we'd host and run his forums if he wrote some articles and appeared in some Q/A chats. We did have one chat with him that was pretty neat. However, his duties became too much and he couldn't do any more chats so we parted ways on the deal. We keep the forum around as an archive.

    If you notice they still point to PF

    Did he actually answer any questions in threads?
    Yeah, it would be nice to have him up here. Even if he's unable to chat, he still can write something from time to time.

    Dr. Kaku appeared once in a live chat event. Unfortunately, it only lasted 2hrs so if you were not available at that time you missed it. Then as now we were an international forum, so many missed it. There was transcripts, and I recall editing out the unnecessary text to create a more readable dialog. I will search my HD to see if I still have a copy. It was posted so should exist somewhere in the current forum archives.

    AFAIK, Dr. Kaku never posted or even browsed the forum.

    I see that guy all the time in the discovery channel, he's in a ton of documentaries. I didn't know he frequented PF at one time. I guess i have to start taking the PF'ers more seriously, maybe they do know what they're talking about. :smile: Probably not though.

    I was told by his reps that he did casually check up on things. He however never did register or post to my knowledge. Too busy of a schedule.

    He wrote some for our sister site physicspost.com

    Theory of everything is difficult, college or graduate level is not enough to understand it, sadly it gone although I don't want it to stay either, because me neither, unable to grasp even a little bit of what selfAdjoint || DrKaku was talking about.

    But true, I agree to any ideas taht DrKaku should also learn about Internet bussiness before having a forum hosted :biggrin:
