Interview with me

While I was at the 2010 BIO convention, I was running around capturing footage, talking to people about our site, and taking pictures of Frank’s escapades whenever I could. Somehow in the middle of all this, the Council for Biotechnology Information grabbed me for an interview.* While I am normally on the other side of the recording device, I thought I did pretty well. Here I am talking about the biggest misunderstanding about Genetically Engineered crops, and also the stuff I am really looking forward to in the next decade.

It looks like I am sleepy, but maybe that is because I was looking down toward my interviewer, so next time I shall imagine I am talking to someone much taller, like Shaq. I can understand why they edited out my diatribe about biotech companies plotting to take over the world,** but what about my plug for Biofortified?

* Note: no exchange of currency was involved in this interview. But I think there was a blood oath or a pinky swear in there somewhere.
**Tongue firmly planted in cheek.
