Last night I had some grapes, some artichoke dip on bread, some cheese and crackers, and some Merlot in a plastic cup. Which can only mean one thing: I was at a catered event!
Indeed, it was the Darwin Day celebration at the Bell Museum. There was Darwin Cake and the opening of two exhibits, and a presentation by five scientists, myself included, on Darwin, Evolution and stuff.
The speakers were:
• Dr. Mark Borrello, history of science
• Dr. Sehoya Cotner, professor of biology
• Dr. Greg Laden, biological anthropologist
• Dr. Keith Olive, particle physicist
• Dr. Mark Decker, professor of biology
And a special thanks and shout out to Shanai Matteson who is so good at making this sort of thing happen.
Mark Decker totally ruined it for the rest of us presenters by giving one of the best talks I’ve ever seen. Damn him and his talents!!!!!
For those of whom were there and wanted a slightly expanded view of the crap I was spewing out, here are three posts on this blog that you may want to look at:
And, Lynne had mentioned Congo Memoires. Start here. Read the first one and near the end you’ll find a link to the next one. Then read that one. And there will be a link. And so on and so forth. Enjoy. (Or, if not, stop reading them!)
