San Diegans –
PZ Myers of Pharyngula will be giving a talk at Scripps Institution of Oceanography tomorrow at 3 PM. (I set it up as part of my mission to bring SIO more into the wild world o’ blogging.) Here’s the abstract:
Sharing science: education, activism, and advocacy
I’m planning on telling the attendees the secret to getting a million visits per month to their blogs. No, actually — I’m going to discuss and justify diverse approaches to getting the public engaged in science issues, and I plan to mention both what I consider to be successes (but which may not change the wider conversations) and failures (which even so are of value). And it’s open to the public! Come on down to Vaughn 100 on the Scripps Institution of Oceanograph (map), and join in the conversation.
