A few have commented on twitter, what a fantastic handle, or why @einsteinagogo ?

so I’ll lift the lid on the secret…very few know the actual reference is to an eighties song (1981) by Landscape - “Einstein A Go Go” - “You Better Watch Out You Better Beware Albert said that E=mc2” - “Einstein A Go Go“! Landscape had hits with “Einstein A Go Go” and “Norman Bates” in the UK Pop Charts in the 80s.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Albert Einstein, and I thought @einstein (although my citizen band radio handle late 70s/early 80s) was to egocentric for twitter, although I do have a rather large head!

so @einsteinagogo it was, I think the first reference (einstein-a-go-go) of using it was on the VMware Community Forums in 2005!

Mike Laverick of VMware fame (from Nottingham, UK) spotted it quickly on the VMware Community Forums, and wrote “fan of Landscape” from an early posting in 2005.

Quotes by Albert Einstein

“If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would have only four years of life left. No more bees, no more pollination, no more plants, no more animals, no more man.”

Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.

It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.

Information is not knowledge.

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.

So now you know!
