Andy Weir talks to Lawrence Livermore Labs

This is a brilliant 45 minute talk by author Andy Weir on how he came to write his book, The Martian given to an audience at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

I’ve not read the book but enjoyed the heck out of the movie. Andy shares lots of great stuff from both the process of writing the book but also how the movie came to be made. He’s a smart, cocky, geeky dude who gives a great presentation.

This is really worth watching if you’ve read the book or seen the movie, but even if you haven’t, this will whet your appetite for both.
