Harvard College Gazette

U.S. newspaper story about the IgNobel prizes with pics of what happens on stage, with real Nobel Prize winners (!) sweeping up paper darts that have been thrown by the audience. The ceremony was all great fun, and featured “Miss Sweety Poo”, a charming eight-year-old girl whose job was to come up to speakers who exceeded the thirty second limit and keep saying “Please stop, I’m bored” until the speaker was forced to stop. Very effective; I wish I’d thought of it during my time as a scientific conference organiser. View image of article
