Wired Science October 3, 2007Posted by davegoblog in Science, Technology.
WIRED SCIENCE, a production of KCET Los Angeles in association with Wired magazine, premieres tonight at 8pm (ET/PT) on PBS. The new series “imports the DNA of Wired into an exciting new medium for us,” says Melanie Cornwell, the show’s executive producer for Wired. “We’re all fascinated by the many ways that science and technology are changing the world.”
The topics in the premiere episode include investigation into an Internet botnet attack of Estonia’s banks and newspapers, “RoboDoc” performing cardiac surgery, how homeland security fears are changing kids’ home chemistry sets, and technology that translates facial expressions into emotions to help children with Asperger’s Syndrome.
In addition, WIRED SCIENCE will have a comprehensive online presence at its Web site, and its hosts and correspondents will be blogging and writing extended content. There will also be an educational online component for students and educators.
So, set your recording devices or switch channels between innings tonight. If you miss it, then check it out later online. Note: the site is currently being updated with the premiere happening tonight, so the navigation may be a bit screwy 🙂
