Today is Annalee Newitz‘s birthday (well, it’s still today in the most relevant time zone – uh, hers not mine).

Annalee has been writing about the intersection of science and technology and culture for many years. It’s a busy intersection. Since 2008, she’s been editor-in-chief of one of my favorite websites, io9.com. If you don’t already know it, go there right now and come back. I’ll wait. Or maybe I won’t. Because you aren’t coming back anytime soon.

io9 is chock full of science and science fiction – and I’ve always wondered where they got the name of the site. io9? What does it mean?

I finally got to ask her, last year, when I interviewed her during the ScienceOnline conference (January 30-February 2, 2013) in Raleigh, NC.

We also talked about some science and science fiction, surprise surprise.

Happy Birthday, Annalee. I got you this:
