John Von Neumann Documentary

Thanks to a reader for these links. YouTube is amazing!

Teller on von Neumann's enjoyment of thinking, and his horror at the breakdown of this ability due to his terminal cancer. (Also mention's that vN's relation to "the rest of us" was similar to talking to a 3 year old :-)  "Only he was fully awake"
