I’m a science writer, editor and lecturer probably best known for my award-winning work as editor in chief of Scientific American and as the host of the TV series Hacking The Planet for The Weather Channel.
I like to blab about science—in print, online, on stage, in video, on podcasts, in classrooms, and on ViewMaster reels if anybody is still making those. All areas of science interest me, though I feel particular fondness for the life sciences, technology, and ethical and cultural challenges of new discoveries. I’ve been at this since the mid-1980s. This is the repository of my nonsense.
