Damnscience?

Shameless plug:

Nerd Nite at the Mission Tuesday 3/26 at 7pm (you know your McMenimens, get there early if you want food).
3 topics: Sex, Dying and the Future.

Kris Gowan, PhD – Who turns you on? We all know that “sex sells,” but what about if what you’re selling IS sex?

Anders Liljeholm – Predicting the Future: predictions of The Future people made in the past, in 1900, 1950 and 1990, and then look at predictions people are making now about what life will be like 50 years from now.

Jay Lake – Cancer, Baby: about the diagnostic process, the experience of life with the disease, and most importantly (to science geeks), the perils and payoffs of being one of the leading edge patients for whole genome sequencing as a diagnostic tool.
