An afternoon with Leonhard Euler - Some insight into the man

i thought aout doing a short article on Euler, but then i found this video from the philoctetes Institute, with  Dominic Balestra, Loren Graham, Edward Nelson, Rebecca Newberger Goldstein, and Max Tegmark.
I think that this video does a better job than i would, plus it is a wicked lecture on Euler, easy to digest even if you don't have a maths background.
We should keep in mind that not only he was one of the most prolific contributor to maths and other areas like physics,  mechanics, fluid dynamics, optics, and astronomy., but also the one who has more terms named after him ( an overwhelming advantage, when compared to other big names in science if i might say).
In one of my previous posts, Euler's identity is mentioned, in order to achieve the sine wave generator!
