Marshall Brain Has A TV Show Now

My fellow NCSU Comp-Sci peeps might remember Marshall Brain. He taught me Perl one week, when he filled in and taught my data structures(?) class. He might be best know as the guy who invented HowStuffWorks.com. Anyway, the other day, yarbiedoll told me that she heard that has a TV show now. It's on the National Geographic Channel, and the first episode is tomorrow night.

I don't watch TV anymore, but I might check this one out.

SWEET! My TV only gets the Discovery Science Channel and NGC, so I've have noticed eventually... but now I'll go ask it to record it. Thanks for the heads-up.

Interesting! Putting it into the Tivo schedule now, just in case... assuming I can actually get their site to load.

I remember him. Didn't know him personally, of course, but I remember reading his website regularly way back when.

I've always liked Marshall
I'm really digging his new 'blog' he (or his staff) has been writing (http://brainstuff.howstuffworks.com/) since howstuffworks was bought by Discovery. It's a fun and informative read.

Back in 2005, I wrote up my own brush with Marshall in my undergrad days (http://rambleon.org/2005/02/03/little-things/) I really dug the fact he was willing to talk to a freshman with a silly question. I've met few faculty really willing to do that. Good for him that he didn't stay long at NC State, bad for NC State.

I've seen the commercials for this show a lot recently, and he really looks like an interesting guy.
