Galactic Interactions

If you listened to Science Friday on NPR’s Talk of the Nation today, you may have heard Ira Flatow mention a question from “Prospero Linden”— that was me. I was there, live, along with a 30 or 40 other people in the studio audience:

For the last several weeks, Science Friday has been simulcasting over NPR and in Second Life, using Nashville’s WPLN audio stream for the purpose. (I had nothing to do with that!) Meanwhile, Ira Flatley, the 2nd life avatar of Ira Flatow (and his extensive staff), together with hosts, listen to and repeat on air the occasional question that comes from the sundry people present. Meanwhile, all of us carry on a text conversation about what we’re hearing on the radio, sometimes with various tangents.

If you’re interested in this drop by next week. Science Friday is hosted in the Science School region in Second Life.
