These are becoming very popular alternatives to conferences of "interdisciplinary studies" . You get a bunch of people who are interested in science, are doing some science, or write about science. Then you meet at a bar and someone starts giving a talk about anything of their interests.

Then the fun ensues.

ANYBODY been to one?

@farmerman,
I've been to social media nights several times; there's a group called Mass Innovation Nights here, where you can go look at people's inventions and new apps once a month.

Why, yes, I've been to the NERD Center.

@jespah,
A buddy who teaches up in New Haven told me that they have these "Nerdnights" at a bar near Yale and it gets to be great fun because , since its kinda lightnhearted, heckling nd shouting out is part of the fare. Remember, alcohol is involved.

@farmerman,
I undertand that nerd nights started around the Palo Alto area by a bunch of Stanford grad students, and these things caught on all over the US.

@farmerman,
I never even heard of them before. If I heard of one conveniently near New Hampshire though, I wouldn't mind attending to see what it was like. Probably just a room full of men though.
