This youtube video is a MUST SEE. Kudos to Alpinekat (to whom I ask to leave here an email contact) and colleagues for the huge contribution to the popularization of particle physics and Science in general!!!

Update, July 29th: Thanks to Dennis Overbye, I now know the name of the artist who wrote the lyrics and sang it in the video. Her name is Katie McAlpine, a science writer working at CERN. DUH! How’s that for a deceiving nickname ?

Just a link to a post by Gianandrea Giacoma on the site of the sci.bzaar.net workshop, an event about which I wrote here, here and here.

In the post, Gian uses very kind words to introduce a video on my thoughts on the need of horizontality in scientific blogs. I already posted a link to my video yesterday (beware, it is in Italian – I will try to find the time for an English version though, or at least provide a transcript in English), but the one on the sci.bzaar.net site does not need to be downloaded before playing – a huge bonus since you might get bored halfway through (oh well, damned if you do. It’s just 7 minutes).
