Yay! The US Postal Service has just introduced a Richard Feynman stamp!
I actually had dinner with Richard Feynman once. (!!!) Not a formal dinner, certainly; this was a barbeque in the summer of '85 or '86 in Cambridge, at a house shared by his son Carl and some other folks who worked at Thinking Machines and Symbolics at the time. (Hi LindaM!) Ah, those heady AI days in Cambridge.
But I was able to sit down with the man over a tasty chicken
dinner and talk about some of his recent work. It was an
absolutely fascinating discussion. Of course.
