Oh, what a night!

Despite the cold, a number of nerds both new and not came together in the woodburner-warmed comfort of Hotel Bristol last night.

And the talks were awesome - faces were agog! A number of interesting things got mentioned, though, and so we thought we'd send out some links. Because we love ya :)

Undead laws
Rochelle impressed upon all of us the importance of getting our wills sorted out. I'm now hearing sounds about a will party! If we throw such a thing, we'll definitely let you know (and if you'd be interested in attending such a thing, give me a shout).

Leeloo Dallas Multiverse
[Ahaha]. In addition to the lucky winners of the double pass to CONSTELLATIONS last night, I've now heard of other nerd niters who're so intrigued byt the show that they'll be attending it. Huzzah! Check out the link below for show details.


Remember the alt/indie rock band Eels? Well, here's something you may not know - the lead singer's dad was Hugh Everett II - the quantum physic
ist who first proposed the many-worlds interpretation (MWI) of quantum physics There's a really interesting documentary about it all called Parallel worlds, parallel lives.

And, if you're still thinking about how physics and free will interact, there's are some great Radiolab episodes (newest first) looking into multiverse theory, relativity and free will. Heady stuff!

Radiolab: Beyond Time
Radiolab: The (Multi) Universe(s)
Radiolab: No special now

In conclusion
