Nature to host "bioskiff" roundtable

According to Peter Watts, the journal Nature is going to host a roundtable of bioscience-based science fiction writers (or as Watts calls them, "bioskiffs").
Here's something cool: I'm getting interviewed tomorrow by Nature, in a kind of teleconferenced roundtable with fellow bioskiffs Paul McAuley, Ken MacLeod, and Joan Slonczewski. We're going to be talking about everything from the sublime (H.G. Wells) to the ridiculous (Michael Crichton), and it's going to end up both in their print journal and on their website (plans to also release the event as a podcast may be aborted depending on Skype's sound quality that day).
I'm looking forward to hearing (or reading) the results!
