Making history

Dr Sean F. Johnston, Science historian from the University of Glasgow, has written a book on the history of holography - a huge, gorgeous, hardback book. Holographic Visions: A History of New Science (Hardcover). It's now available on

I am - of course - rather desperate to know whether I'm in there - and I'll bet I'm not the only one!

I wonder whether Sean is going to have to write himself into the history of holography from now on?

Rob, you are welcome, I would have been gutted not to be able to make it to the Symposium myself, and it's so very expensive for those in the US. I would recommend buying a conference proceedings for the actual info (and Kaveh isn't giving me a commission!)
Best wishes,
