Scientist earns money by telling tales of science – Start up “Story Collider”
The scientists were nervous. Milling around the Rickshaw Stop and nursing pints of beer, a few dozen brainiacs were about to sit for a curated performance of personal science-based stories. Strings of lights dangled across the ceiling overhead, and one wall was draped in a red velvet curtain. The whole ambience felt much more Park Slope than Hayes Valley. Even the bartender looked like he wasn’t quite sure what exactly was going on.
The Rickshaw Stop is usually a music venue, but had been taken over on this particular Sunday night and eschewed hard rock for an evening of science storytelling, “The Story Collider.”
