I'm the director of The Story Collider and a Contributing Editor for TED.com. This is my personal blog, wherein I write whatever happens to need writing, and point at things I've written or otherwise done elsewhere.
A year and a half ago, Erin Barker told this story at The Story Collider. A month later we asked her to join the team. Related? Sadly for the story, no. But it’s still an amazing story, and we’re re-releasing it as part of the launch of our Women & Science issue of The Story Collider magazine. Read the first story here, and stay tuned for more.
