Later this week I’m heading out to Los Angeles for the book festival. I’ll be part of a panel Saturday morning at 10:30 on science books, moderated by KC Cole. My fellow panelists, Avery Gilbert and Leonard Susskind, are also among my fellow finalists for the Los Angeles Times Science Book Prize, which will be announced Friday night. So it’s possible that if you come see the panel the next day, one of us will have a particularly big smile on our face.
My recent talk in Los Angeles about Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life is now on the web. You can watch it here. The sound is a little buzzy, thanks to my stentorian pipes, but I hope you like it.
