On Tuesday, April 4, Boston-area Seed friends and contributors gathered for dinner and conversation at Cambridge’s Oleana restaurant.
Seed founder and editor-in-chief Adam Bly hosted the event. Steven Pinker, Seth Lloyd, Irene Pepperberg, Jonah Lehrer, Karl Iagnemma, and Alex Palazzo were some of the guests in attendance at dinner, an event designed to connect friends of Seed throughout the area.
“The idea” of the evening, writes attendee Palazzo on his blog, The Daily Transcript, “was to throw together scientists from various disciplines and Seed contributors, and observe the resulting chemical reaction.”
