At 11:00 a.m. Mountain time (13:00 Eastern, 17:00 GMT) I will be in the live chat room on The Nerdist's Node website. You need an invite to participate; send an email to node "at" to get one. Nerdist is my friend Chris Hardwick's website, and The Node is the online community for it. For the chat, I'll talk about anything that comes up -- well, you can ask anything -- but I expect people will be most interested in this new planet and the NASA funding bill. Hope to see some of you there!
