I was invited to the Nerd Nite event last night, I’ve seen this group in Facebook before but was not sure what it was. You can read all the why, what and when about this group in their website, it is very interesting.
This is basically a get together for nerds (of all kinds) and it happens the first Thursday of every month, nerds get together to see presentations about anything (really anything, last night I learned about the carillon), I overheard someone said yesterday… “it is like National Geographic for nerds”.
The topics are varied and the people talking about them, at least last night where very passionate and nerd about their topics. I truly enjoyed the presentation about the carillon, not the subject of the presentation but the energy and passion of how this girl (Sarah Donaldson) delivered the presentation, very cool.
If you are in Austin on December 2nd, you should check them out, nerdnite Austin meets the first Thursday of every month at US Art Authority.
Peace out Austin peeps!
