Ron Seely of the Wisconsin State Journal has a nice story in today's (Sunday) edition about the Madison Science Pub ("Science Pub organizer taps scientists for informal gatherings mixed with beers"). Now midway through its second year, this event brings a good crowd every month to the salon-like atmosphere of the upstairs of Brocach Irish Pub, right on on Capital Square in Madison. I make an appearance in the article as the guest of the very first event two years ago, and the first repeat guest.
Its not exactly a scientific formula but Skip Evans has discovered that if you combine a scientist, good beer, and a crowd of curious people, you come up with a very interesting Sunday afternoon.
Oh, I think that's the most likely scientific formula of all! Organizer Skip Evans really deserves recognition for keeping this event going so strong.
