the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley]

broadcasting without permission from an attic somewhere in Berlin [about the metaverse – naturally!]

show #86: curious george

show #86

show #86

back in the glorious days of ’08 the scilands archipelago of sims was home to MICA which stands for meta-institute for computational astrophysics. among many thriving exhibits run by a number of other institutions, MICA held public lectures and was focused on communicating with the enthusiastic science “amateur”.

our guest today is curious george aka caltech professor george djorgovski who was instrumental in popularizing [at least temporarily…] the concept of using virtual worlds for science outreach.

enjoy a special show, partially recorded in empty physical rooms/virtual sims & one vibrant european city:

now go on, dear listener and read:

    In the retrospect, doing it in a busy bar on a busy street maybe was not the best idea.
