Here are some upcoming local events I'm interested in that are related
to cognitive science.  Maybe I'll see some of you there.

Wonderfest, the Bay Area Festival of Science, will be returning to 
UC Berkeley on Sunday, November 7:
Of particular interest to this group is the discussion 1:30 - 3:00 p.m.:
"How Did Evolution Shape Human Behavior?"
David DeGusta, Research Paleontologist, Paleoanthropology Institute
Henry Gilbert, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, CSU East Bay
This event is FREE.

Wonderfest will also be at Stanford University on Saturday, November 6,
and this discussion may be of interest, 1:00 - 2:30 p.m.:
"Does 10,000 Hours of Videogaming Have Side Effects?"
Jane McGonigal, Director of Game Research, Institute for the Future
Philip Zimbardo, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, Stanford
Also FREE.

Finally, Sam Harris will be preaching at the First Congregational Church
of Berkeley on Wednesday, November 10, at 7:30 p.m., on his new book
(just released this month):
"The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values"
Tickets cost $15 at the door (or $14 in advance, $7 in advance for students).
I expect this event to sell out.
