Tell us three areas of science in which you are interested.

Evolutionary theory (also, how SF&F woldbuilding should be informed by it) Elementary particle physics (I have very little hope of following the maths, but I have friends who can explain some of it to me) Can I say "computer science"? It's mostly maths, and maths don't count as science in the Galileian tradition, and… ok, I'll shut up now.

Tell us a funny or interesting anecdote about you.

Hmmm. Hard. Let's try for a few shert ones. One: last year, when David Weber was at Forbidden Planet for a signing, I stayed until the end of the event, and managed to follow him and some people from the shop to a pub, where he kept talking for a couple of hours. Two: I've been to Japan; I know very little Japanese, barely enough to ask basic questions, definitely not enough to understand the answers. I still kept asking questions in Japanese, then having to ask the other person to answer again in English… Three: the last time the Science Museum had the Difference Engine running, the curators were doing their best to answers everyone's questions, but there were just too many people asking, so I started answering them. This could easily be cnstrued as rude or hubristic.

What kind of events would you like to attend?

Events where we learn things, talk about things, discover things, run experiments, dismantle each other's pet theories.


I'm not entirely sure about the "dating" aspects, but it might even work :) And meeting more science-minded people is always a plus.
