Any readers interested in hanging out in NYC on Sat 9 August?

As you may have read elsewhere on ScienceBlogs, a bunch o' bloggers will be converging on New York City ("The City" as I knew it growing up) on Saturday, 9 August.

Seed Media Group, the host of this blog network, is proposing a meet the bloggers session sometime around 3 pm EDT somewhere in the city - certainly air-conditioned - and will offer some swag, a few vittles, and other such items of pleasure beyond the opportunity to meet the faces behind these words. I've been told that I have a great face for radio.

I was not originally not scheduled to attend as my sort-of-local sister will be elsewhere with her family that weekend and other issues have arisen that might keep me home. However, I might be able to scrape up a few doubloons and get a 24-hour furlough to meet some of y'all.

Seed has asked us to get a headcount of readers potentially interested in coming out for such a soiree so let me know in the comments if you care to meet some of the ScienceBlogs bloggers, regardless of whether I can attend.

I mentioned last week that I was going to be in New York the weekend of August 9, the better to commune with my fellow Borg at the Cube (no, not that cube, although I may have to make a stop there too) in Manhattan known as Seed Media Group. As part of the festivities, our benevolent overlords at…
The chip in my head (the nice doctors at Seed installed one when I signed up for this blog) is all a-twitter. That means it's almost time to make my way, slack-jawed and drooling with my arms groping vaguely about the space in front of me, all the way across the continent to Seed's aboveground…
Longtime readers may remember that last August saw a semi-spontaneous confluence of ScienceBlogs bloggers in New York City. Apparently, we are nothing if not creatures of habit. This August, we are as salmon swimming upstream to return to our spawning grounds. (Well, except that most of us are…

You better be there on Saturday night, Phuckwit!
