We all know Hans-Ulrich. He is very welcoming and friendly. We tried to arrange our Skype coffee-break conversation so many times; he was always proposing to meet up in the middle of the night and he always ended up reaching his Skype connection even later. At the end we proposed him to make a sort of selfie-interview.
We sent him our questions and gave him the freedom to respond whenever he found some time. As a true experimenter as he indeed is, he was excited by this proposal. What we show you now is the result of this agreement. The voice reading our questions belongs to his assistant, Max Shackleton.
Enjoy listening to one of the most brilliant intellectuals of our times. TC, December 2014.
