GEEKS! My friend Phil Plait and his wife Marcella just started a really cool idea - a science themed vacation agency. Nerdtastic, right?

Hey geeks! I wanna tell you about a really cool thing.

I come from a large family of geeks, and my older brother just published his first book, on James Madison - one of the most important, but also often overlooked, of the founding fathers. And, bonus, it's a university press book, which means it contains things like "facts" and "information."

So, please consider buying it. I know from my talks that a lot of you are history geeks like me, and this would make a great addition to your reading stack.

Oh man, this is a really cool SciFund project. Check it out!

WOOP! We succeeded in the DVD drive to 10k (and a bit beyond!). There's still a little time left to donate as I post this.

We're also winding down things over at SciFund. So, if you'd like to contribute to Science!, please check it out.
