Science Foo Camp – Saturday morning

Breakfast time! Professor Steve Steve decided to look around for Googleplex for scifoo celebrities….(under the fold):

    Randi followed by Martha Stewart? I just don’t know what to say.

    Freeman Dyson and Martha Steward in the same meeting? How I would love to be a fly on the wall to listen in on their conversation.

    Hmm, that Duncan Hull is kinda cute. I wouldn’t turn down his phone number.

    Incidentally, Coturnix, you look like my ex did when I first met him. (Similar ancestry, I think.) You may take that as a compliment if you like… 🙂

    OK, I just had lunch served personally by Martha Stewart. I was just ahead of her in the food line and I realized that various foods were misidentified, so I said that out loud. She expertly identified the foods, so I could move the labels around to their proper places and was rewarded by a nice slice of lasagna placed on my plate by Martha herself.

    Now, go be jealous….

    Amazing, Bora. Between your new job and your Martha Stewart connections, maybe you could score a deal in her new housing development.

    I knew it – one simply cannot run a mega-geek meeting like this without Martha…, and you had to have your lunch served by her. Dude, you have it all going for you.

    Well, Alla was not there, actually, but I am very happy to have met Anna instead. Being a scientist and a blogger, I find Anna Kushnir far more interesting.

    I could have helped out with the lasagna (although perhaps with less flair than Martha) but I really know nothing about chess.

    Both my wife and my son consistently beat me in chess. Perhaps Anna and I can try a game next time we meet…
