Ciro Santilli

🔗
This hardcore physics dude has amazing content, not the least of which he seems to know the history of physics insanely well (notably emphasizing that there is value of tutorials written by early pioneers of the field, see also Section "How to teach and learn physics"), and holds similar views of education as Ciro Santilli.
🔗
He does subscribe to some conspiracy theories, e.g. the stuff about the Boston bombings, but the physics might be sound, Ciro Santilli does not know enough physics to judge.

Ron shares a few philosophies which Ciro greatly agrees with, which together with his knowledge of physics, make Ciro greatly respect Ron, including:

Eugene Seidel: On your personal info page you write that you are not a physics Ph.D. but does that mean you were a physics undergrad in college then went to grad school and finished ABD... or are you entirely self taught?
Ron Maimon: ABD. I am self- taught though, I only went to school for accreditation. I had a thesis worth of work at the time I left grad-school,
Eugene Seidel: ok thanks
Ron Maimon: I was just kind of sickened by academic stuff that was going on--- large extra dimensions were popular then.
Eric Walker: Anyway, thanks Ron -- I'll get back to you with more questions soon, I'm sure.
Ron Maimon: Also I was at Cornell, my advisor left for Cincinnatti, and I was not in very good standing there (I was kind of a jerk, as I still am). Some friends wanted to start a biotech company called "Gene Network Sciences", and I joined them.

This is the company he talks about: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNS_Healthcare.

Ron disappeared from the Internet at around 2014. Ciro figures he's hanging out with Ettore Majorana somewhere.
