Watch Cool Science Stuff! (WCSS) - January 2013

WHAT?
The idea is to get together and watch some great/interesting science/skeptical stuff (TV series, movies, etc.) This is intended to be a very casual meetup...drop by, hang out, discuss after, and then maybe go out grab a bite/drink later.

We will watch at least one of the following:
1) Nova (TV series, 1974-present)
2) Nova ScienceNOW (TV series, 2005-present)
3) TED Talks

**A few of us will be in the room early, from 1pm to 2pm, to dial in to this event: http://www.meetup.com/secularevents/events/97778042/. All welcome!**

FORMAT
After each talk/episode (20-60 minutes in length), we'll take a short break for discussion/Q&A.

AUDIO/VIDEO
The library's meeting room has a projection screen. Jennifer is usually generous enough to let us use her projector. I can bring my computer, speakers, and subwoofer. This worked out pretty well the last few times. I'll be sure to have some talks/episodes pre-loaded on my laptop so we're not at the mercy of the library's wifi!

SNACKS/DRINKS
You're encouraged to bring snacks as long as you don't make a mess and clean up after yourself. You can also bring a non-alcoholic beverage of your choice, as long you promise not to spill it!

PARKING
The library has a parking lot although it might be hard to find a spot. There's street parking nearby.

HANGOUT AFTER
Lastly, for bonus points, if you know a good spot to hang out (eat, drink, talk) after 5pm in the Logan Square area, please comment below. The one with most "likes" wins!
