My Little Black Book of Scientists I Love
On a very warm and muggy July 30, 2010, outside of Krannert Theater on the U of Illinois campus, Joanne gave a live presentation to an audience of 400 people for the Champaign-Urbana Pecha Kucha 20 slides 20 seconds each!
I play a time traveling beauty who can visit any scientist I wish. Find out who is in my little black book of scientists I love! The superb phone image in my presentation was designed by Matt Cokeley, formerly of Popular Science and currently the Creative Director of Mag+.
I was lucky to present all of this science after the beer break, where people may have imbibed a bit, making them a bit more receptive to all of the science and scientists I presented. It was great fun!

The above Pecha Kucha talk was presented at the Staerkel Planetarium in November 2011.
