Cafe Scientifique 

I don't know how I missed this for this week's NOW.

Check out Café Scientifique, an awesome, free, 21+ gathering tonight at ECHO:

It’s the place where science and culture intersect. Based on the popular European salon concept, ECHO’s Café Scientifique provides a unique, relaxing setting to engage in thoughtful conversations about hot button science topics, with the participation of an acknowledged expert in each field.

We turn down the lights, arrange some tables and chairs, and open the bar. We chat with old friends and new faces alike, get a beer, have some hors d’oeuvres and then find a seat.

At 7 p.m., the speaker of the evening begins a conversation on the science topic for the evening. After 30 minutes or so, we take a break to get more drinks and elicit questions for the speaker.

After that, it’s time to challenge the speaker, have dialogue at the table, drink more, and feel like we’ve delved a little deeper into the science of this wonderful world.


Tonight's speaker is UVM Physics Prof Dr. Dennis Clougherty. His talk is titled: "Nanotechnology: Size Does Matter." Cool.

Science is totally in now that Obama is president. Haven't you heard?

Thanks, Bill, for the tip.

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
