On Wednesday December 7 in Philadelphia I’ll be doing a 20 minute presentation at Nerd Nite about some of the things I’ve been working on preparing for the 2012 tour and beyond. Indeed this is very exciting. Scroll down for more info. It should be a fun evening. See you there!

For your edification, we present:
We can learn a lot about extinct animals from the overall anatomy of their skeletons, but even more information is contained in their bone microstructure. Bone tissue records a detailed record of an individual’s life history, and thin-sections of fossil bone provide windows into understanding the biology of critters long dead. Age, growth rate, stress, and sex—it’s all in there if you know what to look for, and can stand a little sawing and grinding.
Allison Tumarkin-Deratzian is a vertebrate paleontologist in the Temple University Department of Earth and Environmental Science, where she pontificates about rocks and fossils and delights in making her students’ heads explode. She also moonlights as an actress with various community theatre groups in Montgomery and Bucks Counties. This basically means she spends her days with dead things and nights with people that don’t really exist, which may explain a lot.
“When You Have Nowhere To Go Except Everywhere” by Scott Beibin
‘Groucho Fractal’s Nearly Amazing Quantum Transdimensional Survival Guide at the End (and Beginning) of Everything’ is a touring live performance and webcast exploring the intersection of science, consciousness, art and nature hosted by Scott Beibin. The show features the delightful pairing of eco-engineering, open source philosophies, and emerging technologies with silly dance moves and tasty raw vegan treats. Come enjoy a short preview of the Groucho Fractal show before the official(ish) launch in 2012 at this installment of Nerd Nite Philly.
