Remembering John Maynard Smith

You are invited to attend this Humanist presentation that includes
video clips of John Maynard Smith: theoretical evolutionary biologist, geneticist and game theorist. Richard Dawkins said of him:

''Never mind the lectures or the “workshops”; be blowed to the motor coach excursions to the local beauty spots; forget your fancy visual aids and radio microphones; the only thing that really matters at a conference is that John Maynard Smith must be in residence and there must be a spacious, convivial bar. If he can’t manage the dates you have in mind, you must just reschedule the conference….. He will charm and amuse the young research worker, listen to their stories, inspire them, rekindle enthusiasms that might be flagging, and send them back to their laboratories or their muddy fields, enlivened and invigorated, eager to try out the new ideas he has generously shared with them.”

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
