I'm blogging for Huffington Post, science section

It all happened very quickly. Met with David Freeman and Neil Katz of HP last friday and the post is up already. I'm going to write about crazy people and projects I love. The most time consuming thing: figuring out how to post to Facebook, Tumblr and Blogger... and parenting.

Here's the article:

Images below: left is from Duchenne de Boulogne's monograph M├ęcanisme de la Physionomie Humaine. This is the toothless old man I wrote about. He's being exposed to electrical stimulation to the face to reveal a particular nerve / muscle combination for a particular human emotion.
