Cocktail party panel

I know the Pasadena panel on Cosmic Mysteries was a couple of weeks ago now, but the scientilicious Jennifer Ouelette at Cocktail Party Physics (and TAM 7 speaker!) posted her thoughts on the event. You should read it, because she is uncommonly intelligent and correct, saying that I have a “trademark sharp focus and good humor”. Of course, her marrying a theoretical cosmologist may justify some doubt on her judgment, but at least he wasn’t a biologist. And he does blog for the Hive Overmind, so I’m in a forgiving mood.
