You’ve heard about it . . .

You’ve yearned for it . . .

At last, on July 10, it’s another crazy night of Nerd Salon! Come out
and socialize with your fellow geeks in a mildly intoxicated manner!
This episode of Nerd Salon brings you:

* The circuit board stylings of Matt Ettus (, who will be
doing a live demo of GNU Radio, the open source software-defined radio
project (

* A mind-bending puzzle for you to solve for a very special prize.

This irregular evening of mayhem is organized by your nerd captains Jennifer Granick ( and Annalee Newitz ( Come out and have a drink with people who won’t make fun of you for hacking, hating on DRM, copyfighting, discursing on public policy, building nuclear reactors in your garage, reading science fiction, working in a bookstore, arguing about open source software, collecting Buffy dolls, dancing with robots, blogging and/or podcasting, lusting after the iPhone, or getting excited about the new Hulk comic book.
