Vi Hart melts my mind again with a totally fun video explanation of binary counting with dancing hands and groovy music. The amount of intelligence, creativity, sense of humor, and the sheer joy of exploring ideas is downright dizzying. She makes it all look effortless. Vi Hart for Secretary of Education!

As we’ve pointed out before, Vi is our Math Monday columnist George Hart’s daughter. Vi’s brother, Christopher, did the cool and funky music for the video, too. What are they putting in this family’s water?
