Ever wanted to rob a bank? No? Ever worried you might... do it anyway?

OVERWRITE centres on a security guard who is having a very bad night. Someone is robbing his bank. Someone who looks exactly like him.

A horror-heist thriller, packed full of paranoia and terrifying impossibilities, OVERWRITE is a short film that documents the all-too-rapid disintegration of that guard's reality along with his desperate attempts to claw back control. Crowdfunding now!

"She has an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), which unlike a pacemaker kicks in only if she needs to be shocked out of an arrhythmia and back to life. Recently, it has mistakenly shocked her twice, including while she was pregnant. Pregnancy can bring on heart rhythm changes that the device interpreted as a dangerous arrhythmia.

Sandler wants to be able to explore the code running her device for programming flaws and vulnerability to hacking, but she can’t. “Because I don’t have access to the source code, I have no power to do anything about it,” she says. In her eyes, it’s a particularly obvious example of a problem that now cuts across much of modern life: proprietary software has become crucial to daily survival, and yet is often locked away from public exploration and discussion by copyright."

Good video and explanation of the coffee ring effect - why an evaporating drop of coffee leaves a dark ring around the edge, not even colouration.

Hey all, I'm doing my first #science #comedy in #London for a year! It's going to feature awful puns on open source, complaints about peer review, and some musings on what experiments are worth doing. I'd really appreciate anyone who wants to come down! There's also 7 other great performers including history of dissing in the 17th century, science communication using light, and cuddly toys.

Costs £6, all money to charity.
