OK, I’ve got to admit. I’m a little excited about being a judge at the ASCB 2007 cell slam tomorrow night. For the uninitiated, a cell slam is kind of like a poetry slam — which are geeky enough on their own — but adds the extra geeky element of being all about biology. The basic remit is “three minutes, one microphone, no AV.” For the record and in interest of full disclosure, I’ve participated something akin to this before. My colleague Erika Check Hayden caught the action last year, and it sounds like it was quite a trip.
