Discover String Theorist

Interestingly, and flatteringly, I've been getting some emails directly from publishers and magazines promoting their products. I hope I have enough readers (but it's quality and not quantity, right?) to warrant this attention!

Anyway, the people at have alerted me to an online chat with Lisa Randall, today from 2-3pm. Have a look/listen/read if you can. She's been making serious waves on popular culture this last year.

Of course I've had her book on my to-read list for a year and haven't managed to read more than the acknowledgements. On the other hand, I have been reading Lee Smolin's new book, which is being branded as "anti-string theory", but I've been finding fascinating for many other reasons. Stay tuned for my blog review.
