Gleeming the Cube

Invented by a Hungarian professor in 1974, the Rubik's Cube quickly skyrocketed to international popularity, then languished out of the public eye for many years. Recently, the cube has been making a comeback. With the Canadian Speed Cubing Championships coming up this Saturday in the run up to the World Championships this fall in Budapest, we asked Bram Cohen to give us a glimpse into Cuber Culture.

-- Bram Cohen is the inventor of the BitTorrent protocol, and co-founder/CEO of the company by the same name. Bram owns a large collection of Rubik's cubes and other twisty puzzles, and is in development on a number of advanced puzzle designs.
