For you L.A. locals, tonight I'm giving an informal talk at the Alhambra Library; all are welcome. Which reminds me of a few other public events coming up:

  • Of course TEDxCaltech is this Friday.

  • On Monday 24 January I'm giving a public lecture at my alma mater, Villanova University, on Philadelphia's scenic Main Line.

  • For any glamorous cinephiles who will be at the Sundance Film Festival, I'll be on a panel on Friday the 28th to talk about science and movies.

  • On January 30 I'm giving a talk for the Skeptic Society. No details yet, but it will be at Caltech. I'll be busting out a brand new talk, on the laws of nature and the meaning of life.

  • On February 21 I'm giving a colloquium at Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh. No explicit public talk, but they usually allow interlopers.

  • On March 1 I'm giving a public lecture at Reed College in Portland. Back to the arrow of time for this one.

  • The last weekend in March, Jennifer and I are doing some sort of joint gig at the San Diego Science Festival. Details yet to coalesce.

  • On April 5 I'm doing a fun event as part of the ALOUD series at the LA public library. It's a joint appearance with poet Jane Hirshfield. We'll be seeking common ground between our disciplines; failing that, fisticuffs.

There are also some special big-ticket events coming up this summer -- more once they are whipped into shape.
