YAY! CONGRATULATIONS, PHIL!!!

Wow! I only just read that Phil Plait is the new President of the James Randi Educational Foundation!!! Yayayayay! That is sooo massively cool. I know Phil, you know, he’s like my friend and everything. I know the President of JREF. I totally do.

Blinded Me With

Brian and I are off to SciFoo this coming weekend. I’m so excited. We were invited last year, as well. In the end, Brian went on his own and I stayed in London cos I was working on the Daywatch theatrical release and the Sunshine and 28 Weeks Later DVD releases and, well, I was […]

Science, CERN and Art

I read an article written by the lovely Mike “Sizemore” Atherton today on the Creative Choices blog. It’s about Chris Morris, CERN, Science and the Arts. I won’t go too much into what he wrote, because I’d like you to go there and read it, but he wrote about how he’s never really been interested […]

Am I Green Enough?

I’ve been pinged for a ‘green meme’ in a blog post entitled ‘The Greenscam Part II’. I’m supposed to “write about the ways in which [I’m] consciously “green”, and also the things [I] know [I] should do in a more ecologically friendly way but don’t.” First, what I find interesting is how being green has […]

Frank Spotnitz

NOTE TO X-PHILES: That was not me in the XFN chatroom last night. I don’t know what was said (I arrived an hour late!), but it was just Maru messing around. So, don’t think you’ve got some ‘inside scoop’… Remember, trust no one. ;) Frank Spotnitz, producer of X-Files: I Want To Believe, answers some […]

Skeptics and Robots and CERN. Oh My!

What a great time I’ve had over the past five days! As you will have already known, Phil Plait was over in the UK to visit CERN with us over the weekend. You can read about it on his site and, of course, the podcast he and Brian did will be going live soon, too. […]

CERNPodcast

I just thought I’d let everyone know that I’ve updated the design of CERNPodcast today. It might still be messy in places, but I can’t do anymore on it. I’ve been staring at a screen for 6 hours straight and now have eyestrain… Still, I think it’s so beautiful that my temporary partial blindness is […]

I’m A Tory

OK, well, not quite. Firstly, because I am a foreign national in the UK and can’t vote. Secondly, because I’m a Democrat (American, like), I still equate ‘rightwing’ with ‘neocon’ and it makes me fume and get all angry and want to argue with Bush-loving Fundamentalist Christian Military Housewives. Saying that… Brian and I just […]

African Einstein

During TED there was a lot of sniping online. People were jealous because they’d never been invited to attend or people were jealous because they’d never be able to afford to attend. People were bitchy about those who go to TED calling them elitist, smug, self-serving etc. My take on it is very, very different […]
