Hidely hodely, dear readers! I don't typically bleg, but I'll make an exception for the Secret Science Club. Check out the Kickstarter page, and think about throwing a couple of bucks their way to ensure that the free lectures will continue (the S.S.C. keeps me off the streets, and where I belong- at the bar!). There are only five days left for the fundraiser. Back when I worked in a big office with 100 or so of my closest friends, I'd ask people to back me in an MS Bike-a-thon. I'd ask everybody for two dollars (the proper amount for a kid on a bike to request), reasoning that I'd rather have a hundred people give me two bucks each than to have two people give me a hundred.
Oh, and check out the awesome picture of the Hamletbot3000 by talented illustrator and all-around good guy Aaron Lampell. It's a hilarious concept, brilliantly executed. It goes without saying that anybody in the New York metro area should check out the lectures- you get to experience what college would be like if the lecture halls had fully stocked bars. What's not to like about that?
