And now, a word from our egos

Science for Citizens is getting some attention over at Motherboard.TV, an online video network. Co-founder Michael Gold and I were interviewed by Jordan Keenan of Motherboard this past spring at Harvard during the Humanity Plus Summit where I spoke about citizen science. Here are the slides from that presentation. You’re welcome to them.

In the following interview, recently published on Motherboard, Michael and I banter about the demographics and motivations of our favorite peeps: citizen scientists. Hope you enjoy it!
