History Hacker, TONIGHT, 8pm & Midnight on History

I was involved in making this really awesome, smart, fun, geeky history show with a strong science bent and a maker ethos. I hope you all watch the the show tonight, because it really deserves to live on as a series (and there's a dearth of smart, fun, geeky shows on the air)!

From History.com:

> Meet Nikola Tesla, the unsung genius behind the most miraculous advances of the Age of Electricity, and Hacker-extraordinaire Bre Pettis who will break the history of electricity down to its nuts and bolts. Bre will show you how to build your own versions of Tesla's greatest inventions and takes you on a journey from New York City's ultra modern power plants, to one of the world's most advanced satellite research labs, and then onward into the future of energy...unlimited wireless power.
