Geek speak

Earlier this week I was given the opportunity to speak at a Geek Showoff event in Clerkenwell. Being prohibited by 500 or so fiats from speaking on anything even tangentially related to the sciences, I picked the next two geekiest subjects on my list of interests: cryptic crosswords and military history.

The below is the result, kindly filmed by Matt Allinson, whose own set from later that same evening can be seen here. The Telegraph crosswords in question are here to be printed off and solved at leisure.
