Cafe Scientifique

Thanks to Matt at Behavioral Ecology Blog, I came across Cafe Scientifique. It seems like a pretty cool idea. Folks get together periodically (once a month, say) and discuss recent scientific work in any of a wide variety of areas.

The Cafe Scientifique Network

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.

The closest one to me is > 2 hours away, though. I’ll have to explore the idea with some friends around my neighborhood. Perhaps there would be enough folks interested to start such an activity here.
