Wonderful conversation between Gregory Benford and Steven Hawking over here. I used to keep up on the sexy world of theoretical physics, but instead I've chosen to be a performer...a choice I'm happy with, but I still love to dabble. Benford does a beautiful job of sketching Hawking with intellectually-nuanced affection, and in thie brief piece he comes across more accessible and human than I've seen him portrayed previously. I really enjoyed this piece, and I highly recommend it if you like either physics or good writing about people having conversations.
