There's a movie site that decided that it would be a good idea to interview non-movie people about their tastes in movies. I kind of liked the idea, since I'm often disagreeing with movie industry folks about movies. So when I was invited to answer some movie questions, I did so. You can see the result at
Robert Grumbine – Movies and the Masses.
I'm kind of impressed at the author's skill there -- finding what must be about the only two scientist characters from movies that I look better than. (My wife would say that the list is much longer, and maybe she's right. Just in case, I'm still not taking her in to get her eyes checked.)
But the 'masses' bit, and another part of the article bring up an interesting point about science and scientists, or at least about how I think about it, and that is the role of 'smartness'.
