Thank you, Rachel, for your sharp eyes!
It appears that Harvard Book Store has cancelled "Kludge: The Haphazard Construction of the Human Mind"
due to the author's illness. Aw... I was looking forward to this lecture, too. I'll keep an eye out to see if they will reschedule.
Justin, an Assistant Organizer for Nerd Fun, is hosting at 6:45 pm on the day the talk at the Harvard Bookstore was supposed to take place is "Abandoned in the Arctic @ the Harvard Museum of Natural History"http://socialnetwork.meetup.com/718/calendar/8075069/
"This documentary tells the harrowing story of Adolphus Greely and his team of 24 men who set out in 1881 to build an arctic research station on Ellesmere Island in the high Arctic. When they became stranded there Greely and his men were forced to make their way south through 250 miles of some of the coldest, roughest water on Earth. James Shedd, Greely's great great grandson, decides to make the same journey to see for himself what his ancestor went through and gets a lot more than he bargains for.
"The screening will be followed by a discussion with director Gino Del Guercio, executive producer Geoffrey Clark, and James Shedd. Free and open to the public at Science Center Hall B, One Oxford Street".
If you were planning on going to Kludge, this other event is in the general vicinity, I believe. I'll see you guys there!
