TWiSmageddon Celebration Hangout

No story update tonight, I've been getting stuff done in real life in preparation for tomorrow/tonight's TWiSmageddon Google+ Hangout.

The idea of the hangout is that the hosts of This Week in Science (Dr. Kiki Sanford, Justin Jackson, Blair Bazdarich) will be doing a live hangout on G+ for 21 straight hours, talking about science and other cool stuff and confirming in each time zone that yes, indeed, the world hasn't ended and no, there's no sign of a giant wall of fire or some other cataclysm that might herald the end of the world as we know it.

There're going to be lots of people taking part, including myself and many other TWiS chat room participants, but also including such notable luminaries as The Sword & Laser's Tom Merritt, Dr. Carin Bondar, Joanne Manaster, and possible/unconfirmed other notables like Andy Ihnatko and the Frogpants Network's Scott Johnson.

Naturally, I'm a little freaked out at the prospect of being on camera for this thing, being both a sufferer of social anxiety and being a bit camera-phobic, but I've survived various GeekBeat.TV hangouts and being on The Sword & Laser's video show briefly, so I'm sure I'll survive this too.

Full details about the event can be found at the TWiSmageddon Event on Google+.
