Last November I gave a talk at the Google outpost in Santa Monica, on dark matter and dark energy. I covered a lot of ground pretty quickly, introducing the Standard Model and the basics of the Big Bang as well as some ideas about the dark sector. This was part of the Authors @ Google series, which features a plethora of great talks. Check out Salman Rushdie, Arianna Huffington, John Hodgman, Tyler Cowen, Anthony Bourdain, Steven Pinker, Lane Montgomery, and dozens more. I've collected various YouTube videos featuring my bad self, but I honestly can't bear to watch any of them. Can't stand to see myself speaking (although obviously I have no issues with other people listening raptly). So if any of these are actually Rickrolls, don't blame me.
