Tales from the Industry XXX – Specialty Act

I just thought you’d like to know this. I’m a Specialty Act. Got that?

Last month, just before taping some material for a new TV show (that you can see on a major broadcast network starting in a week or so) I signed some routine documents. One of them involved me ticking a box to specify my official status for the purposes of this work I was doing. (Another was a non-disclosure agreement, backed up by requests to not say more about it in advance of things, so I can’t tell you about the taping and so forth just yet. I hope to do so later.) Anyway, I asked the legal people which box I should tick. Turns out I’m a Specialty Act. Not a consultant or some other more familiar term usually applied when I am bringing some science to the popular culture mix, but a Specialty Act. I felt like I should have been coming on the stage juggling model planets and riding a unicycle while balancing an astrolabe on my nose. Yep… Years of training in studying the world by drawing diagrams, setting up and solving equations and so on and so forth makes me a Specialty Act. Heh.

Well, why not?
