Square 1Oct 04 2013

A promising debut by Sarah Pavis of a science program called Square 1, an attempt at a Connections-like show for the modern day. In the first episode, she explores how phone touchscreens work.

In addition to being an occasional guest editor around these parts, Sarah is a mechanical engineer, so she knows her science.

I am in [PARtially undIscloSed location] for vacation this week so I've asked Sarah Pavis to fill in. Her Tumblr says she's "a mechanical engineer & writer living in Chicago" and when I met her briefly at XOXO in September she didn't seem like a dishonest person so I believe that she actually is those things. Sarah has also done some writing for Buzzfeed and some tweeting for herself. She's also active on Stellar, which is where I noticed that she had a good eye for whatever the hell it is I do here, an eye that spotted this video, which goes from sexy robot to terrifyingly fast insect death machine in about 45 seconds.

Anyway, welcome Sarah!
