The art of science and the science of art.

Piled High and Deeper


No one hones in on the insanity and hilarity of the graduate student existence quite like Jorge Cham of PhD comics, which here doesn't stand for doctor of philosophy, but Piled Higher and Deeper. Even those of us that don't have a PhD (like moi) can relate to these comics, and that's what makes them so wonderful.

I'm also a big fan of his work that uses graphs to illustrate the point. What could be more fun and nerdy than laughing with graphs? Nothing, I tell you!


But Jorge Cham and the PhD Comics team are not just about comics, they also produce educational videos. I'm sharing my personal favorite here about quantum computing. Enjoy!
