I've been involved with the Nottingham "Cafe Sci" almost since its beginning, and am currently doing most of the planning of the talks programme, term by term. I really welcome the new energy and enthusiasm that the Meetup group have brought us.
Others should join if they are interested in ideas and knowledge for its own sake - and for the sheer pleasure of discussing ideas. The range and depth of material we have covered in 10 years has been staggering - and the community of free thinkers that has come about just through these events is one of the richest aspects of living in Nottingham......
I made a hash of that - should be @forthespacemen
Tis I indeedy ... lots of Michels in foreign parts, but "Michel & Funny-Surname" is unique.

Thanks for the message of welcome, Robin - this all looks like great fun! I'm away over Easter, but will be putting in appearance at some point over the next month or two. Linda
I've just today ordered a copy of "the brain that changes itself" by Norman Doidge, which I will fit into my reading somewhere. I'm alternating fact/fiction at the moment, so just finished off a collection of Harlen Ellison's short stories, I've just started on "Dancing on the grave" by Nigel Barely, all about anthropology, death rituals and funerary rites; then I was itching to start on my oft-put-off ambition to read some of H.P.Lovecraft.
Yes - I remembered who John Searle was: the Chinese room. For some reason, I didn't connect the two!
Hi Robin, has the audio file from Noah Russell's 'neurology inna pub' lecture been made available yet?
I'm eager to spread the word, is all.
Thanks Robin. I don't know where that is though. Do you have a link or the URL address please? thanks.
