  2. David,
    Thanks for the reference. I must admit, I was touched when I opened the digitized copy of Newton paper, or that famous posthumous publication about the theory of chance by Bayes, or Maxwell Theory of Electromagnetic Field…

    For me, as for Physicist for my Masters and for Chemist with PhD – that was batter than any tearjerker …

    I hope more such projects will arrive soon ….

  4. Share them on digg.com, reditt, mixx..Your posts are extremely innovative
