And by roar, I mean babble for a straight hour. A couple of weeks ago, I did a Bloggingheads chat with fellow Scienceblogger, Abbie Smith (she of ERV fame). See video below to hear us chat about science communication, journalism, HIV research, being bloggers and, in a fantastic non-sequitur that comes out of nowhere, vampires.

A few points

  • This was fun! Although a bit weird, given that I could hear Abbie but not actually see her. Instead I could see my own face on the laptop screen, and it was a tad disturbing hearing the voice of an American woman seemingly coming out of my mouth.

  • I love the slightly awkward start. I think Abbie said it best after we cut the video feed by saying "Yeah, let's make two introverted people talk solidly for an hour."

  • Look at the forum posts - at least one person thinks we wasted an hour of their life. To which I can only say: MUHAHAHAHAHAHA.

  • At some point in the video, I ask for viewers to make LOL versions of us. Here's the first awesome entry. Feel free to create more.
