Awkwardly Embraceable interview

By Phil Plait | October 26, 2012 12:57 pm

My friend, the geekeriffic Jessica Mills, interviewed me for her blog on Tech Republic (the second part is here). It was a lot of fun talking with her; we wandered over topics like Hubble, Star Trek, science, Doctor Who, black holes, Neil Tyson and Bill Nye, and what I would do if I encountered advanced aliens in a wormhole (answer: self-promotion).

Jessica is amazing. She is a writer, producer, and actress, and was the driving force behind the very funny web series Awkward Embraces (which I wrote about in a post a while back). If you’re a geek – and you are – you should watch it.

She’s also just cool and funny and smart and talented, and you could do a lot worse than follow her on Tumblr and Twitter. Hey. She was a Geek-A-Week, so you know she’s cool.

    You’ve got a broken line to the post a while back. I’d love to read it, but it’s so mangled that even looking at the source I can’t quite figure out what was meant.

  2. Indeed. Click on “in a post” and I just get “Error 404 not found”.

    “Let me not to the marriage of true mnds admit impediments”.

  4. Ah, fixed it. Cut and paste error borked the code. Thanks!

    I loved that “don’t mention Star Trek on a first date” video, but forgot to save the link back then. I’m glad it’s come up again, so I can see the rest.

    Felicia Day with Boobs! Cool

    What, so *now* I’m a geek? Not so long ago, , Phil, you said I didn’t belong on the internet!

    Which is it?
