Dr. Lamb spoke on the Guardian UK science blog: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/audio/2010/aug/16/science-weekly-podcast-smart-swarm-superheroes it at about 27:20 min in.
Listening to her doesn't make it less stupid. She obviously had a problem with Tony Stark and superhero coloring books!
After listening to the murumur podcast and checking out the Nano site I decided to give it a go a couple of days after it started. So far so good and I'm halfway there. I knew it was going to be hard given that I haven’t written anything longer than 5000 words in my life and the last bit of creative writing I did was two pages in high school (which is obviously the basis of my novel).
I have no ambitions as a creative writer but most jobs with any substance require you to be able to produce written pieces against a deadline. This is, in my view, good training for that. It has also helped me unclutter my mind by putting to paper story ideas I have swimming in my head. All I need to do know is slit that creative vein and pour the blood sweat and tears on paper and see what happens.
In my humble opinion, good writers are those that can communicate clearly in whatever medium, whether it's ideas, emotions, facts or even a recipe. Having a novel published or other is irrelevant.
