    HI Joe – I look forward to coming to your seminar. I commented something very similar on Claire’s post… if only I had known, when I was a school kid, all the amazing things that can be achieved through science and technology, I would have probably been more inspired in pursuing a career in these subjects. I guess my teachers weren’t great in communicating that to me – and here’s where you come in: go and inspire all the teachers on Friday!

    P.S. Thankfully I have a great job in Communications so that I can still stay in the loop and talk about these fascinating topics 😉
