The debate with Lord Drayson (who assures me he will attend in full “lord” fancy dress) will be streamed live from 7pm at:
www.timeshighereducation.co.uk/webcast.htmlIt should be good fun, and I hope something productive will come of it. There is also a twitter tag, #scidebate, which you can contribute to, and which will hopefully be copied onto a screen in the RI lecture theatre, so that in 2056 you can boast to your grandchildren that you once announced “I love badger knob” in the very same lecture theatre that once hosted Faraday, HG Wells, and so many others. You might also need to tweet @timeshighered if you want to get through, according to this website. Try both.
I’ll bung my slides up here later if I get a chance. There’s also a twitter tag for people swapping tickets, #draysonticks, and there’ll be some no-shows on the door I imagine, especially since all the science journalists and PR people are going to go to the screening of that new film Creation in Kensington instead. If you’re a mate and I’ve forgotten you, or a science blogger, email me and I’ll bung your name down, I’ve got a couple of tickets spare. There’ll be pub after (and presumably a drink in the costly pink RI bar), maybe in that pub on that road. You know, that pub.
