Fast Company & The Large Hadron Collider

Fast Company just wrote a fun piece on Summit at Sea. Of course Jeff gives crazy quotes as usual. And somehow, he compares Summit to a Large Hadron Collider.
I started going through my memory and I vaguely remembered that Dan Brown’s book Angels and Demons (his book before Da Vinci Code) was about the Hadron Collider…So, I check wikipedia..it’s the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator and is 17 miles in circumference and it collides opposing particle beams of either protons at an energy of 7 teraelctronvolts per particle, or lead nuclei at an energy of 574 TeV (92.0 µJ) per nucleus.
How Jeff pulled an analogy like that is beyond me! Article here
