Sure his fingers are pointing to the moon and the sun, but we keep looking at the blue dots... or it is 11:05 a.m.

Happy New Year! Not drinking meant being able to get up at 7am and surf in a delightfully uncrowded ocean.

Any mathematically inclined folk want to help me figure out triality automorphisms for the split octonions?

I had the impulse to stand up, wave, and yell "me, hello"! But that wouldn't be too helpful. I don't know much (forgetting too quickly what I learn), and I'm too busy. All I could tell you would be from John's posts anyway. About the links you get searching google:

https://encrypted.google.com/search?site=&oq=john+baez+split+octonions+triality&aqs=mobile-gws-lite..&q=john+baez+split+octonions+triality

The ones on his ucr page are tidy, and probably well updated. Some of the related discussions at the n-category cafe were nice, too. Searching for him and octonions here on g+ might also be an idea.

My shortcomings aside I would like to try again and get at this stuff, maybe even surviving to the end this time. Is there any chance that you, +Garrett Lisi​​, 'd post explorative notes here?

Feels good to be out kitesurfing again.

Right now, around the world, savvy journalists are writing articles about the discovery of gravitational waves.

Apparently, the start of this result does not fall on an integer second, which was a give away on the previous inserted event test.

Envelopes will be opened Thursday... but part of the reason for the rumors may be that there were multiple detected events (only one of which might be a test injection?)... or so I hear.

A new planet out past the former planet known as Pluto? That's got to be Goofy.

Yep. Funny — thirty silly FB comments, and one insightful comment on G+.

Boom-stars: we now have a better understanding of how hypernovae make gamma-ray bursts: http://news.berkeley.edu/2015/11/30/missing-link-between-turbulence-hypernovae-and-gamma-ray-bursts/
A supercomputer simulation shows how turbulence in a collapsing star can fuel a hypernova explosion and bright gamma-ray burst

Story
Tagline
surfer-physicist
Introduction
I'm an unusual physicist. After getting my Ph.D. from UC San Diego, I moved to the island of Maui to find an optimum balance between surfing and pursuing my own theoretical research. While pulling at a loose thread in the foundation of Quantum Field Theory, I soon found myself looking at the most beautiful unified model of particle physics anyone had ever seen. My story and work have been featured at TED, in Outside Magazine, The New Yorker, and recently in Scientific American.
Bragging rights
Made Brian Greene jealous.
