Renee Blodgett from We Blog the World turned her camera on Kris Kimel late in the afternoon on the last day of the 2011 festival to interview the IdeaFestival founder on the origins of the nerdocalypse. Give it a watch.
At the end of the brief interview, Kris hints at one of the presenters for next year, who, as it happens, appears on a very popular television show and has a Ph.D. in neuroscience. I'd say more. I also really like what working with the festival.
