    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 […]

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 […]

Professor Brian Cox on Horizon

Here’s the first behind the scenes clip from Brian’s new Horizon on Time. He’s still afraid of creepy-crawlies.

Because I Cannes

Unlike Sizemore who’s going on Friday, I am heading out to Cannes on Saturday morning. Sizemore and I, in Cannes, at the same time… Hmmmm… What could be going on there? Some kind of internerd conspiracy? Sizemore says: “Should be seeing a few familiar faces out there…” Watch this space. And this one. And this […]

Better Television

YouTube is great for stumbling upon my past. Way back when life was simpler, my lovely friend Gareth Jones made a children’s programme for the BBC on the 25th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, called Afternoon On The Moon. He was lucky enough to get to talk to Buzz about his trip. When Afternoon on […]

X Files

Wow! My unboxing of the X Files script video has got about 2,000 views in a day. X Files fans are talking about it all over the place. Most are excited and supportive. A few, however, are very negative. Hostile even. It makes me think about ‘belief’ and how our own personal attitudes colour our […]

Brian’s TED Talk

Yay! Brian’s talk is up on the TED site! Here it is. I’m so proud of him.

Sunshine In The Cinema

Sunshine is on at the Rio Cinema Dalston in London this weekend as part of the Physics On Film festival run by the Institute of Physics (and organised by my friend Sam Rae:). Unfortunately, I’m not going to be in London this weekend otherwise I’d be there. I’d love to see ‘Sunshine’ in the cinema […]
