The GW Science Geek of YouTube

shodou-calligraphy.gifNewspaper columnist and blogger Susan Elston recommends the slightly cheesy but excellent science geek videos by wonderingmind42.

“Unlike Gore, who couples star quality with the style and grace of American royalty, (to say nothing of some very expensive PowerPoint presentations); wonderingmind42’s anonymity actually makes it much easier to ignore the messenger and focus on the message.”

With 61 video posts, he’s the science teacher you wish you had in high school. Although Al Gore and his Nobel prize captured all the media attention, Elston says what we need is a non-celebrity.

“Someone, or something, that can crawl inside our consciousness in the privacy of our own homes, and gnaw away at it until we truly understand that what we are facing is unprecedented in human history.”
