Nerd Nite #7: Airships, Bridge, and Cartography
Let's get back to our ABCs this month. Justin Quimby opens our set with a talk on airships (and blimps and zeppelins and dirigibles and whatever other lighter-than-air aircraft you please). I'm sure that his mention of "metallurgy" in the abstract is not just to placate me. We're pleased to have George Baker from T.Y. Lin, who is helping to replace the East Bay Bridge. The bridge has been in the news lately, and we're really excited to hear about the engineering that is making it safe. Darin Jensen is rounding out our set with a talk on cartography. His recently kickstarted Food: An Atlas has made me hungry to learn more about maps and map making.

DJ Ion the Prize and Rick and Rebecca will round out the evening, as usual. Be there and be square!
