Do SMART People Prefer SMART Events?

From: user 7.
Sent on: Sunday, November 30, 2008 10:19 PM
Hello Smart People.

Given the incredible amount of group intelligence in SMART Singles, Laurence and I thought that there might be also an interest in organizing events that challenged us, and got us hanging out with the other Smart people in Vancouver.

I have offered a selection of events that I took from Common Ground, The Georgia Straight and Business in Vancouver to see if other people in our group we?re excited about attending these events as well.

A great example of a SMART Event would be attending a lecture by David Suzuki on climate change at UBC.

Below is a list of SMART Events that seemed interesting. Please take a look at them and then visit our new poll. It is only one question so should take about five seconds to answer.
