I'm giving a public lecture on NW Coast Archaeology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on October 3rd at 7.45 (This link says 7.00 but there is an AGM first, I think). It's free and open to the public. If you come, be sure to say hi. I'm also in Portland the next day (October 4) and if anyone was interested in meeting for an after-work beer that would be fun - but I'm staying near Gladstone/Jennings Lodge so don't know how feasible that is, I don't know Portland at all.
Jordan Ellenberg (MetaFilter's escabeche) will be at the Santa Fe Institute giving a talk on The Unlikely Power of Uncertainty and Contradiction tomorrow night, Oct. 18, starting at 7:30 PM.
I will be giving a talk on Batman villains and the insanity defense as part of a Super Heroines, Etc. event. Super Heroines, Etc. (aka SHE) is a St. Louis-based 501c3 nonprofit focused on empowering women through educational events, classes, and workshops. If that sounds like your kind of thing, then you should come!
I will be speaking at the Mill Valley Library on December 2 at 7:00. The subject will be my book, Fat Tire Flyer.
The natural history museum does a monthly science lecture with cocktails. This months is called "The Story of the Human Body." It starts at 7 but to get seats it's better to be there when the doors open at 6:30. The event is free but you can register at the link below. If anyone is interested you can read more about it here and perhaps we can get drinks after.
Let's have drinks while we learn about science! [more inside]
