Scientific American & Discovery Channel

I was quite startled to receive an e-mail a few weeks ago from a producer of Daily Planet, a tech show on Discovery Channel Canada. She had read the article in Scientific American and wanted to do a piece on my system for their show. (If you read that article, by the way, be sure to look closely at their fantastic mad scientist depiction of my cabinet.)

The camera crew arrived today and did an all day shoot both here at the house and in my office on the campus. I guess I'll not get to see it air here in the US, but I'll be glad to post the air dates for Canadian readers once they let me know. I'm hoping they put a streaming version on their website so anyone interested can catch it here in the states.

The shoot was a lot of fun and I've placed some still pictures I took during the setup today. Click on the thumbnails for larger, captioned versions.

Oh, and the final tally on the big Slashdot surge on October was 1.2 million raw hits in twelve hours. I did 48,000 hits for the entire previous month if that gives you a frame of reference. I feel honored to have been Slashdotted. :)
