    Strong, not skinny.

    This morning I woke up to see yet another woman being attacked with horrendous abuse and rape threats on Twitter. My first reaction was despair. “Not again. Will this never stop?” Before I made myself feel defeated by ignorant morons, I got down on my floor and did some push-ups. I ended up doing 100, […]

    Jocelyn Bell Burnell

    Thank you to everyone who voted for Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s discovery of pulsars in the Great British Innovation vote. She came #4. Amazing! Several weeks ago Roger Highfield from the London Science Museum got in touch with me to ask if I’d like to take part in the Great British Innovation vote. He sent me […]

    Finding The Positive

    There seems to be something very exciting in the zeitgeist at the moment. Lots of different people from different areas seem to be thinking the same things. People are tired of the “cynicism” “pessimism” “criticising” and instead are calling for more “creativity” “art” or simply asking others just to “do something“. 2013 is clearly about […]

    Translating Peter Rabbit (hieroglyph edition)

    Skip ahead to the translation here. I’ve added some notes about this to my Posterous I’ve been learning Egyptian hierogylphs for nearly a year now at the Egypt Exploration Society in London. So far I’ve only translated texts provided by my course tutor that have been either texts from monuments or specially written texts to […]

    Soft Circuit

    I’m starting to explore the world of soft circuits – the fusion of electronics and fabrics. The other day I got a Lilypad Protosnap development board. The Lilypad Arduino is a microcontroller designed to be sewn into clothing. I’d seen quite a few things done with the Lilypad Arduino before, but as I don’t have […]

    Ada Lovelace Day 2010

    This Ada Lovelace Day post was actually written a few years ago when I was trying to get a documentary about the following woman commissioned. These are the ‘notes’ I wrote about her as reference for the proposal. It’s not written with flair (I’m full-time mummying a 10 month old at the moment!), but the […]

It’s A Witch Hunt

This whole BBC/Queen/Fakery/Blahblahblah thing… From Broadcast Blogs: Bless Me Father For I Have Sinned It’s been a long time since my last confession but I fear my editorial judgement might have lapsed. I have, on more than one occasion, used cut-aways that misrepresented the facts. I’ve included shots of presenters looking interested when they evidently […]

Movie Mash-up

Yesterday the winner of MySpace’s MovieMash-up competition was announced- Vito Rocco. He’s won the chance to direct a feature film. His winning film is here. Two people I’ve been working with for the past couple years were part of the judging panel. Andrew Macdonald was the producer of ‘Sunshine’ and one of my very favourite […]

They Say It’s Your Birthday

Mark Neonbubble just reminded me of a year ago tomorrow when I asked for my Wikipedia page to be first created, then defiled as a birthday pressie. At one point it read: Gia (born July 11) is neither Italian, Serbian or English – she’s a Minnesotan (short in stature, but loud, very loud) who came […]

Official: Redheads Have More Fun

I first coloured my hair when I was 13 years old, because I desperately wanted to be a redhead. Since then my hair has been every shade of red imaginable… Copper: Auburn: Tangerine: Tangerine 2: Rustic Red: Pillarbox: Coloured red hair requires a lot of upkeep as it fades very quickly. During my ‘tangerine’ phase […]

A New Reel

I’ve just cut a new reel… What do you think? Too long? Too short? Too… something? I had to add Yoko at the end. :)

BBC Goatse

Many of you will have seen this by now. I just have to say: tv 0, internets 1 The person who drew it came from here, natch.

Foo Wha’?

A couple weeks ago, Brian was invited to Tim O’Reilly’s Science Foo Camp at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA this August (yes, Jasmine:)… And O’Reilly’s just emailed today to say that I am invited to attend, too. (He said he was interested in hearing about ‘Sunshine‘…) Whoooo-hooooo! It’s happening the same weekend as my […]
