David Suzuki on MySpace

Suzuki, David

Okay so I’m not entirely convinced that this isn’t some kind of joke but while rumaging around MySpace I found that enviromentalist, scientist and SFU lecturer David Suzuki has a profile on the site.

First off apparently he is in my extended network, then again so is Sloan I see, and he’s also so much more popular than me it made me sit down in a corner of my apartment and have myself a little cry. Currently the man who I used to watch on Nova has 1827 friends.

Described as “one of the world’s most effective popularizers of science, alongside Carl Sagan and Jacques Cousteau,” Suzuki has considerable charm and intelligence. His social consciousness is as sharp as his piercing eyes. Jerry Bruckley observed in International Wildlife, “He’s passionate, driven, irreverent, brilliant, charismatic, and controversial, and usually in the same sentence.”

That’s from the profile, but it’s still worth a visit. It’s got a fairly awful and garish layout and a really cheesy MIDI file playing our national anthem.

Also if anyone wants to help me surpass the such great heights I’ve reached at three MySpace friends you can find my profile here.
