  1. Ooooooh, I love him! He’s a fantastic speaker and just brilliant. I don’t know if your familiar with “I f*ucking love science” on Facebook, but I just watched a video with him discussing sexism in science after people finally took notice that a female writes the page.

    That’s a link to it. If you feel froggy, hop on over. It’s about 5 min. long.

      • I’m really surprised there was so much shock about her being a woman! The only thing that caught me off guard was that she was British! (I’m a Brit in Canada so other Brits abroad always make me do a double take lol)

      • That one surprised me a little too. And like she said, I don’t know why people were freaking out so much about her gender. Her name is listed on the page if anyone had cared to look.
        I love what she’s doing now though. She’s collecting all kinds of science related autographs to auction off for charity. At least she’s using this spotlight attention for good.

      • I haven’t seen the auction yet. As far as I know, she’s still collecting signatures. But I know she’ll get some good ones.
        She makes me even more proud to be a nerd.

      • I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the auction!

        Yeah, she’s awesome. Thanks for letting me know about such a cool story! I would have had no idea otherwise 🙂

      • I’m glad to share with people who are interested (and interesting).
        And thank you for sharing and liking so much awesome stuff 🙂
