Speaking from the attic
I discuss my new book Curiosity on the Guardian podcast here. No, I’m not at my most eloquent, but I hope you get the idea. Incidentally, water nerds (I know you’re out there) can see my talk on the chemistry of water at the UCLA “Fourth State of Water” symposium in March. This was an experiment in teleconferencing: I prepared a short intro movie using my cheap and cheerful Photo Booth, then recorded my Powerpoint talk with narration, and tuned in afterwards for a Q&A via Skype. All from my home study. And it seemed to kind of work – great to know that it’s possible to do this sort of thing now without a transatlantic flight.
