Biodiversity and the Future of Life by E. O. Wilson

Come earlier for better seats. E.O. Wilson, biologist, Harvard University, will discuss Biodiversity and the Future of Life, at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 25, in Laurie Auditorium. The DeCoursey Lecture Series is made possible by the late Gen. Elbert DeCoursey and Mrs. DeCoursey of San Antonio. E.O. Wilson will give a lecture on his book
The Future of Life. Although ants and sociobiology come to mind when one hears his name, this lecture will be about conservation. To learn more about what you don't want to miss....

    I was experimenting with this lecture...bringing my nine week old along. I want to read E.O.Wilson to her when she gets a little older, but last night she seemed more interested in the wall sculpture outside of the auditorium. Wish I could have hung out and met some of you, though.

    Yeah, that's why I'm saying we can establish a contact and a meeting location for future events. But it does help to hang around after.

    I think we can try to arrange actual meet-up locations for these big public events. We hung around and met up with everyone pretty easily afterwards, but it would help to come up with a place/contact for others. Maybe if someone (hint hint: Mike ^3) could put up their phone number, we can just organize that way.

    Thanks for the seat Allison. Somebody around us had S##t for breath, and every time the crowd laughed I got a whiff of death. Ugh! ha ha.

    I love EO Wilson. I could have listened to him talk for another hour easily. Dinner was great too! Tycoon Flats has at least one great panini! Also, the waiter was great and engaged us in conversation; although I now know more about the guy's penis than I probably should. :)

    This was cool. Thanks for putting this meetup on. I also enjoyed the great conversation at Tycoon Flats afterward. There was a cool debate, and everybody was passionate without getting personal. Awesome. I was in awe listening to the whole exchange. :-)
