Watch Cool Science Stuff! (WCSS) - January 2013

WHAT?
The idea is to get together and watch some great/interesting science/skeptical stuff (TV series, movies, etc.) This is intended to be a very casual meetup...drop by, hang out, discuss after, and then maybe go out grab a bite/drink later.

We will watch at least one of the following:
1) Nova (TV series, 1974-present)
2) Nova ScienceNOW (TV series, 2005-present)
3) TED Talks

**A few of us will be in the room early, from 1pm to 2pm, to dial in to this event: http://www.meetup.com/secularevents/events/97778042/. All welcome!**

FORMAT
After each talk/episode (20-60 minutes in length), we'll take a short break for discussion/Q&A.

AUDIO/VIDEO
The library's meeting room has a projection screen. Jennifer is usually generous enough to let us use her projector. I can bring my computer, speakers, and subwoofer. This worked out pretty well the last few times. I'll be sure to have some talks/episodes pre-loaded on my laptop so we're not at the mercy of the library's wifi!

SNACKS/DRINKS
You're encouraged to bring snacks as long as you don't make a mess and clean up after yourself. You can also bring a non-alcoholic beverage of your choice, as long you promise not to spill it!

PARKING
The library has a parking lot although it might be hard to find a spot. There's street parking nearby.

HANGOUT AFTER
Lastly, for bonus points, if you know a good spot to hang out (eat, drink, talk) after 5pm in the Logan Square area, please comment below. The one with most "likes" wins!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
