April Fool’s Tribute to Thomas Edison

Last year, for April 1st, I was asked to make a guest post to a GE blog called Edison’s Desk.  So I made this April Fool’s Trib­ute to Thomas Edi­son.  I had a lot of fun with the links – try ’em all!

I must really be an April Fool because this is a big day for me.  I’ll be on NPR’s Sci­ence Fri­day with Ira Fla­tow – to talk about sci­ence and com­edy with my friends Tim Lee and Norm Gold­blatt.  The show streams live from 11am to 1pm Pacific/2-4pm East­ern, in addi­tion to air­ing on your local pub­lic radio sta­tion.  Lis­ten to it here.

Then later tonight I’m emcee­ing a great STEM edu­ca­tion event (STEM = Sci­ence Tech­nol­ogy Engi­neer­ing Math­e­mat­ics) in the plan­e­tar­ium at the Cal­i­for­nia Acad­emy of Sci­ences.  It’s called STEM­Po­sium and it’s an evening to honor some fan­tas­tic edu­ca­tion inno­va­tors.  This event will be live streamed from their web­site at 7:30pm Pacific. Check it out!

    Hi,

    My name is Kamini Kandica Abdool and I just sub­scribed to your newslet­ter because even though i’ve never met or hear your rou­tine, I know you’re funny. You told one of my favorite jokes:

    An atome walked into a bar and said to the bar­tender…… blah, blah, blah… you neu­ron. (lol)
