The first voting meeting of the reformed Adelaide branch of the Australian Science Communicators was held yesterday night. Once again we were in the Royal Institute Australia's newly refurbished home in the old Exchange Building, Rob Morrison performed a "Two Cultures" bridging poem on Charles Darwin's illness (he pointed out that while it's the 150th anniversary of the "Origin of Species", it's also the 50th anniversary of the "Two Cultures"). In more Two Cultures bridging, George Poonkhin Khut gave people a walk-through of his interactive Heart Library Project.
Oh, and we also had some elections for office bearers. I got elected as a councillor.
So we've worked out the best time to meet (every third Monday, I have to give up chess club once a month), and the program and events director are feverishly working to choose from the exciting list of events people have thought up to present our 2010 line-up. Sadly, my suggestion of an Andrew Bolt - Barry Brook cage match will probably not get up.
Watch this space for more information. And don't forget Dr. Karl is on at the RiAus this Wednesday night.
