Main Question or Discussion Point

Both PF and Dr. Kaku's organization have agreed to move on and break our forum relationship. PF and Dr. Kaku might join forces again in the future. The Mkaku.org forums are now archived in the physics archive forum.

Thanks to tell us. I was about to ask since I couldn't see that forum here. I thought you moved it somewhere else or perhaps somthing was wrong with me!

Could you say a bit about why you both felt this was a natural break?

(I thought the M.Kaku forum didn't quite fit PF's general profile, but that is perhaps just me..)

Hallelujah, it's about time!

Whatever will selfAdjoint do with all the free time he's going to have? :tongue:

So you don't have any PF pet peeves anymore, Tom.

Yeah.... the Kaku forums were like a outlaw wilderness town with selfAdjoint the lone sheriff...

selfAdjoint was in charge of those forums - alone?! :surprised Wow, I didn't go down there often, but those few trips were, um... you know. SA just gained a whole heap o' sympathy and respect from me. :biggrin:


(And at his age to boot...)

Well, I'm sort of sorry to see it go, but it was a aperitur a nutcase stuck inside PF and there was no need for it here. Besides it gives me the opportunity to finally unburden myself on the subject of Dr. Kaku. To quote myself on another site, he is unscrupulous in sacrificing scientific information on the altar of gee whiz.
 
Well I won't really be shedding any tears. This place is so goldarn busy, I couldn't figure out why Cory and Mike would ever stick his forum over here in the first place. I'm assuming they're too busy finishing college/starting careers to be able to take care of it anymore.
I know Dr. Kaku is extremely busy and it's tremendously irritating that he never shows up on his own website's forums but I guess that's the price we pay for not cloning him.

Really? Oh no! :eek:

These walls are funny. First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em. Enough time passes, gets so you depend on them. That's institutionalized.

But we're sort of so happy since you may have more free time and we can see you around here more. :rolleyes: Of course if you wouldn't decide to move with that forum!
Now we should do something about Tom's(and other mentors) free time. Perhaps removing new theory part could help. :cool:
 
Ah, the Kaku has flown the nest. What was the forum actually about? I never visited it.

I remmember I asked the same question once, and everyone discouraged me not to visit it because... :uhh:
I visited it sometimes but I never found enough time to read a thread completely.

I peeked through that door only once and didn't like what I saw. I never understood why it was here. Good move.

I read and loved the Hyperspace book, I thought it was really great to have that section there....*sigh*

No tears here, either. We can more effectively abuse SA's time with real science.

I wandered in there once, and, well, I'm not really sure what it was about. :bugeye: I was glad I left the trail of breadcrumbs to find my way back out. :rofl:

I see SelfAdjoint is using some of his spare time to hang around the new Mind & Brain forums. :approve: It's a much better place to hang out; he might even find out how to get his sanity back. :biggrin:
