Thanks to the behindthescientist blog, you now get to see a picture of me as a kid!
On skis, no less!
Say it with me now … AWWWW
(There’s also an interview about “how I got here” Click the link for the full chat!):
Current age: 32
Current job: I write and host It’s Okay To Be Smart, a science YouTube series for PBS Digital Studios. (I also write about science elsewhere, when I have time)
What did you want to be when you grew up? For a long time, I wanted to be a medical doctor. I think lots of…
Your humble science guy, acting way too serious to be taken seriously. This is me yesterday at my little brother’s college graduation, and since he would kill me if I put a picture of him up (like, there’s an actual chance he would attack me with something heavy and/or sharp, but we still love each other) a picture of me will have to do.
I just want to publicly say how proud I am of him for getting not one but TWO degrees, in chemistry and physics, at an incredibly challenging school. Way to go :)
You guys know I have a big announcement coming up Monday, right? This is a photograph of me taken during the creation of the thing that the announcement is regarding, and I thought I’d use it to continue teasing your brains about what the thing is, exactly.
Can’t wait. Stay tuned on Monday.
Last night in Austin was hands down the best night of the trip. We had a little meetup of some of my favorite bloggers (is there a word yet for a group of bloggers? like a snark of bloggers or something?) and it was as if my favorite corner of the internet came to life for an evening. I’ve known some of these guys for months and some for years, and it was a blast getting to talk with them in person.
In person observations: Elizabeth has the best smile, Shane has the kindest eyes, Dieter’s softspoken and just the nicest, and Joe has a good laugh. I hope this is just the beginning of many good times with these folks.
Tumblr: Real Life Edition!
So awesome to hang with these great bloggers and generally cool people. Enjoy the rest of your trip, Chels!
