This site takes its name from a quotation by the great physicist James Clerk Maxwell:
In every branch of knowledge the progress is proportional to the amount of facts on which to build, and therefore to the facility of obtaining data.
But data’s hardly the only interesting thing in physics. There’s the experiments that produce the data, the theories that describe what we see, the beautiful results of those theories, and the promise of further exploration and discovery stretching out before us.
As for me personally: my name is Matt, I’m a graduate student of physics. With a bit of luck and a lot of work, this will become a Ph.D. in a few years. But this site’s here for you, so feel free to email or comment any time with your suggestions. I can be reached at email@example.com
