Vernor Vinge will be giving a lecture Thursday Feb 15 in San Francisco.
His lecture is part of the Long Now lecture series. I have been to
several of these and they are interesting. Many of their lectures are
available as Vorbis or MP3 downloads. According to the web page a few
are available as video. For more info see:
I have attended some of their previous lectures and found them very
useful. A small hint: if you plan to attend in person and it is a
popular speaker then get there early in order to get a seat. When I
attended the lecture by Sam Harris last year it was literally standing
room only. I was very lucky to get a seat.
There will be a day long discussion of Evolution on Saturday Feb 10
at Lawrence Hall of Science in Berkeley (see URL for reg info)
and on Sunday Feb 11 at the same location will be a showing of the film
A Flock of Dodos: The Evolution - Intelligent Design Debate.
with Dr. Eugenie Scott of National Center for Science Education leading
a discussion following the showing. This film showing and discussion
will be part of the Darwin Day events:
