Cool news: I just received an e-mail letting me know that I’ve been selected as one of 200 guests for a special behind-the-scenes tour of the American Museum of Natural History here in New York City tomorrow night!
The event is being sponsored by Gizmodo, io9, and the museum. I signed up on Monday, not knowing if I’d have a shot of being chosen for the private lab tour with the scientists. When I received the e-mail a few minutes ago, I was psyched—the AMNH has long been my favorite museum in the city, perhaps the world. I’ve been there several times, and could gladly spend a whole day roaming from one exhibit to another. Now, I’ll get a chance to see the non-public parts of the museum, after being a fan of the institution for many years.
I’m so excited, I might even shave and wear a tie tomorrow night. 🙂
