GeekyMonkey writes "An interesting piece in New Scientist on a group creating live performances for geeks crossing science, comedy, and geek culture. An excerpt from the article:
"Carry-on calculators are to be stowed in the lockers provided, electronic devices must most definitely be left switched on (to make fact-checking easy) and remember, the nearest geek may be behind you. Oh, and if you have a question, please wave the white latex glove — or "personal protective question device" — that you were issued with on entry. With that, this month's Festival of the Spoken Nerd, or FOTSN, takes off.""
