If you like either or both of them then make sure you go along and see what promises to be fine and funny panel at Moogfest in Asheveille, North Carolina!
On hand to talk about the math in both Futurama and The Simpsons with writer Simon Singh will be Futurama co-creator David X Cohen plus writers Ken Keeler, Stewart Burns and Jeff Westbrook.
Simon Singh is a British science writer who wrote the book The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets which had a chapter on Futurama. Simon was kind enough to send me a copy and during my time in hospital recently I had a read of it. It’s a great book and I recommend you all grab a copy.
Also, we’re very pleased to be teaming up with Moogfest to offer two pairs of tickets for the festival. As well as the Futurama panel there’s a wide variety of great speakers from Dan Deacon to Google’s Ryan Germick to Janelle Monae as well as music from lots of big artists like Kraftwerk, MIA and Chic Feat. Nile Rodgers. More info here.
