The PC guy on love and space aliens

by Mathew on October 22, 2008 · 2 comments

In my never-ending quest for strange videos that I find amusing, I came across this clip of John Hodgman — the comedian, author and actor best known as “the PC guy” — and a talk he gave at the last TED conference (I confess that I didn’t unearth this myself; it came, like so many other fascinating things, from a link at Jason Kottke’s blog). It’s kind of about aliens and Enrico Fermi and “lost time” and close encounters, but not really — it’s actually a love story, but one that only John Hodgman could tell. Hodgman’s new book is called More Information Than You Require, and is a sequel of sorts to his first book of largely useless and/or made-up information, which was called The Areas Of My Expertise.
