Hello! My name is Dr. Brian Hart and I am the Founder of SoCal Science Cafe. Greetings from the Great State of Alabama, where I presently reside. For those who do not know me, I am from Minnesota originally, and I went to the University of California, Irvine, where I received my Ph.D. in Astrophysics. I started SoCal Science Cafe in 2004 and it's been going strong ever since! Welcome, everyone!
Two items to discuss with you: First, I am asking members to go to this discussion board:
and contribute entries for a competition to describe the SoCal Science Cafe for our "About" page. Get creative! The toolbar for writing posts lets you use pictures, links, colors, and fonts. After a month, the entries will be voted on by the group in a Poll. How would you describe the group to someone going to our website and considering joining?
The entry will replace what is currently displayed at http://www.Meetup.com/SoCal-Science-Cafe/about/
Secondly, I am all for the idea that has been posted about branded items, but as it stands the Cafe program has no money with which to buy or have the initial set of items made. Would you donate to an initial "starter fund" in order to get things going?
Thank you. Have a pleasant day.
