an exceptional evening of science, technology and your-kind-of-people (the blog)

“My passion? High Voltage.”

with one comment

This month we’re posing a question and inviting responses, a chance for our friends from around the world to be a part of sameAs. The question we’re asking: what are you passionate about? We all have some thing that gets us excited, inspired, involved, and we want to hear from you.

The first contribution comes from sameAs friend, Googler and extreme hobbyist Josh Bailey. Matt and I first met Josh last year at Science Foo Camp (known for short as Sci Foo) held at the Googleplex. By day, he’s a network engineer and polymath for Google, by night – a geek of the best kind who likes to play with extremely dangerous – yet unbelievably cool – “toys”.

Like giant Tesla coils. And electric currents.

So when we asked Josh what he was passionate about, it came as no surprise when he sent us this reply:

“My passion? High voltage.”

Kids, don’t try this at home.

Two more weeks to submit your response to our January virtual sameAs. We’re accepting video clips, images, sound bytes and even Tweets. Just email us at sameasevent <at> googlemail <dot> com or tag with #sameAs. Help us make this sameAs global and spread the word.

More at, and as always, you can follow us at @same_as.

Happy sameAs-ing,

Kay and Matt
