Steve Mirsky of Scientific American came to my recent lecture at Stevens Institute of Technology about Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life. He was equipped with a digital recorder, and now he’s posted a two-part podcast of my talk, introduced by a short chat we had about the book. Here’s part one, and here’s part two. And…here’s the book. You remember books, right? That information technology that came right after papyrus and right before neurodownloads?
