Hello Nerds of Boston,
Our next Nerdnite gathering will take place Monday October 25, 8pm at Middlesex Lounge. DJ Claude Money will supply the nerd-appropriate tunes. The lineup for this month:
1. “Cooking for Geeks: Science in the Kitchen”
by Jeff Potter
Jeff has just written a book of the same name (O’Reilly Media). In this talk he will share some of the nerdy material he unearthed for his book.
2. “Artistic visualization and creative science”
by Ben Jordan
Ben works as both a scientist and algorithmic artist, using visual representation to explore mathematical and natural subjects. In this talk, he will exhibit some prints and movies (large file) from his “Divisibility” series, and will walk us through the creative process. He will also give us a brief history of how the sciences and arts have been entangled, and some suggestions for why and how to further blur this line. Ben lives in Somerville, and works at Harvard.
