Pharyngula

I believe in making things easy for my stalkers, so here’s where you can find me in the near future.

  • Our good and gracious Seed overlords are flying me in to New York next weekend, June 2-4. I’m going to be wrapped up in a little bit of a social whirl, but I might have a few scraps of free time in there—and I know there is a plan to turn me loose in the Bronx Zoo for a while. I will be attended by my trusty batman, Connlann, so if any young NY ladies want to meet a hunky midwesterner, let me know—I’ll have one with me. I, of course, will be more interested in the non-human organisms, and am not hunky.
  • The week after that, my wife Mary and I will be at YearlyKos, June 8-11 (it’s filling up, so if you’re thinking about it, act soon!). If you can’t make it, apparently everyone there, including me, will be liveblogging the various events.
  • On the 18th or 19th of July (the dates are still being arranged), I’ll be speaking at a meeting of Atheists for Human Rights on “Science & Secularism in a Demon-Haunted World“. I’m following Barry Lynn, who’s speaking there in June, and preceding (tentatively) Gloria Steinem in August. I feel a little out of my league.

The rest of the time, I’m hoping I can just stay quietly in Morris and get some work done.

    Good luck at YearlyKOS. I didn’t realize my friend is one of the organizing volunteers and he’s all psyched about it. Big political names there, so a lot of eyes will be watching. Tomorrow the full article in the NY Times Magazine talks about it. I’m not an everyday reader of DailyKOS, so I didn’t realize John Kerry posts there, among others. It’ll be interesting to hear the feedback.

    Editor & Publisher has a chopped up preview of tomorrow’s article: ‘NY Times’ Sunday Preview: Will Bloggers at Major Convention ‘Get Real’?

    I’ve already mentioned this to Katherine, but you *must* hold court in McSorley’s Old Ale House. (Just say, “I’d like twelve dark, please.”). Established in 1854 they advertise, “We Were Here Before You Were Born,” but my favorite slogan comes from inside their establishment, “Be Good or Be Gone.” (Incidentally, this will be my commenting policy when I join Sb shortly.) I have a picture of Woody Guthrie sitting at the favorite table of me and my brother, John, 50 years apart. It’s about a 5 min cab ride from the Seed nerve center.

    Enjoy, and congrats on the YearlyKos gig – unfortunately, I’m already committed to grant review at the time. Best wishes, APB.

    I’m so excited about your session at yKos. I’ll be there. If you’re liveblogging, that means I won’t have to. When someone posted a diary about who you’re most excited about meeting at Yearly Kos, I said P.Z. Meyers.

    I would absolutely love to accompany you around the Bronx Zoo; I don’t usually do zoos, but in your company I think they would be considerably improved. I’m also happy to act as native guide if you find yourself in need of one.

    I know you don’t know me from Steve, but really, I’m harmless.

    You should get yourself across the Atlantic to Scotland. Theres probably a few of us Pharyngula readers here.

    Plus congratulations on knowing how to use the word batman in its more original sense.
