Garden in the Woods has a lovely little nature trail and is all
about preserving the environment. A nice nerd-friendly topic.

And the Higgins Armory Museum is all about the history of arms
and armor. Perfect for SCA/Renaissance Fair/History nerds.

We've been working overtime here at Urban Interactive, and all the extra hours have been worth it! The Lost Shard of the Yard, our newest live adventure game, is now open in historic and funky Harvard Square.

Can you recover a missing and highly precious gemstone? Can you penetrate the unknown forces that guard the secrets of the stone? Maybe, but not before you match wits with offbeat lawyers, crazed former agents, and face the 150-year-old labyrinth of puzzles all while navigating the byways of Harvard Square. This time we've made the sinister plot even more sinister, the whacky characters even more whacky, and the mind bending puzzles even more mind bending. It's a walk in the park like none other! You can register online

Reach me anytime at _ if I can answer any questions or schedule your adventure.

Best,

Dick Paik

here are a couple event ideas... some of my favorite philosophy talks at harvard


1. Sunday November 16, 2 pm at the Harvard Science Center, Auditorium A for a free lecture by Ron Aronson on his book Living Without God: New Directions for Atheists, Agnostics, Secularists and the Undecided, details at http://www.naturalism...­.

Feelings vs. Freedom: Is There a Right Not to Be Offended?
People sometimes deeply identify with their worldview and take offense when it’s criticized. In many secular societies, freedoms of conscience and speech trump any requirement to respect another’s fundamental beliefs, while in some religious societies such freedoms are limited or non-existent. This dispute is now playing out in the UN, where an amendment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has been proposed to prohibit insults to religion. Should deeply held convictions be protected from ridicule? Or are there good reasons for all individuals and societies to agree that worldviews should be fair game for free speech?

Anybody want to go see the Assyrian exhibit at the Museum of Fine Art? It's only around for the next couple of weeks, but it does look cool.

Anyone interested in this? Should be pretty awesome if you were a fan of MSTK3000...

On February 20th, the original cast of Mystery Science Theatre 3000(MSTK3000) are going to be at the Somerville theater poking fun at a horrible movie live!

Is it at the MFA? I get free admission to the Museum of Fine Arts as a Northeastern student. I go there all the time. I'd be up for it.
