It’s hard to believe that February is nearly over–and so, too, is MASTERMIND’s (almost) second month of life. It has been quite the whirlwind.
A lot has happened over the last few weeks. MASTERMIND was reviewed by the Barnes & Noble Review, which called it “knowledgeable…comes together beautifully,” appeared on io9’s list of 23 science books so exciting they read like fiction, and was featured in Scientific American‘s new monthly video series with Carin Bondar, SciAm Cinema. A few new book-related pieces I wrote–for Wired UK, Big Issue, United Academics, and the UK Huffington Post–came out, and two new excerpts were published, in Harvard Magazine’s March/April issue (with a gorgeous illustration by Boris Kulikov, featured here, above) and the Globe and Mail. A talk I gave at the RSA was put online, as were my conversation with Team Locals in Portsmouth and an excerpt of my conversation with Big Think. I also did a few more radio appearances, for NHPR’s Word of Mouth, WYPR’s Midday with Dan Rodricks, the Tom Dunne show on Newstalk, BBC’s Nightwaves with Matthew Sweet, the BBC Robert Elms show,and RTE’s Radio 1 – and a few podcasts, with Little Atoms and the Baker Street Babes. I also did a live Q&A with the Guardian (which includes a link to the podcast we taped while I was in the UK) and a Reddit AMA, which was a lot of fun. And last of all, some written Q&A’s that I did for Pursuit Magazine, the Baker Street Beat, Robert Morris’s Blogging on Business, and the Page 99 Test.
More updates to come, but for now, I’m fairly updated out…as, I am sure, are you.
