Prof. Iain Stewart tells the stunning story of how plants are key to life on Earth. Highly recommended.

Traffic on way back from a meeting. Notice the artistic angle made by bad smartphone handling :P

Resharing +Brant Oglevie's work, because he's kinda fun to talk to. What's to not like? A Heist story in a Science Fiction setting.

I started a crowdfunding campaign to publish my book! When this campaign is successful, my book will be available around December/January!  Check out the link to learn more about my book. I can guarantee you'll love it so much you'll want to read it!
To protect her mentor, a young cybernetic-enhanced thief is forced to steal from the world's most powerful technology company.

This is an amazing documentary about the mutualism displayed by fig trees and the fig wasp. Watch it, you won't regret it.

This video makes you wonder. How big is the Universe? Or how small is it...? Which is more valid.

Fascinating lecture by Dr. Amanda Peet on 'String theory for the scientifically curious.' While it does not actually tackle String theory, the lecture is wonderful to listen to.

Down to the Earth's Core is a fascinating journey. It answers a lot of questions, while bringing up new ones! Worth watching.

Science Fiction writer, Lacerant Plainer.
I am a SF writer; post about Science and geeky stuff. I write about transhumanism, near as well as distant futures, and like to dream of the possibilities that face us. We are uniquely poised to take advantage, or face the consequences of our actions in the near term and this fascinates me.

Love to write, and sometimes manage to do that, but not very often. I have a few Science Fiction stories called 'The Final Colony' and  'Orange Rock' on as well as 'The Judgement Conundrum', a version of which is free on Smashwords ( Would love for you to read my books and comment on your experience. Look for the ebooks in the links.

You can check out my blog for links to my books and flashfiction stories

I have a group on Facebook for all things Sci-fi called 'Science Fiction Enthusiasts'. If you want to join, just send me a join request

If you want to add my Google Page called 'Sci-Fi Author Lacerant Plainer', its located here

My genre is hard Sci-Fi (if one can categorize it). Though most of my stories do not concentrate on the science. 

Additional Stuff
Completed course in 'Introduction to Nanotechnology' at Rice University via Coursera
