As one of the co-hosts of The Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters," Adam Savage work is interactive at the most literal and basic level -- yet also indicative of the forward-thinking approaches to communication celebrated at SXSW. A proponent of both DIY trouble-making and an outspoken advocate for science over rumor, Savage has to balance the enthusiasms that spring for wanting to see something for oneself with the hard facts that have been proven by others time and again. An industrial designer and special effects supervisor prior to busting myths, Savage brings an engineer's methodology to the problems not just of urban myths and historic legends but to the larger problems of
scientific illiteracy and know-nothing-ism in American culture.
