Register Thursday soon for the Cambridge Darwin Festival


The Cambridge Darwin 2009 Festival is shaping up to be one of the most exciting events of the Darwin bicentenary year. Speakers include David Attenborough, Matt Ridley, Lord Krebs, Steve Jones, Richard Dawkins and Dan Dennett.

Registration opens this Thursday, the 23rd of October sometime in the near future, according to the conference organisers. The organisers don't know how fast it will fill up but I'm guessing fast. So don't miss your chance to register for this once-in-a-lifetime festival of Darwiniana at Darwin's own alma mater.

P.S. We at the Beagle Project heartily approve of the Beagle-centricity of the festival website's rotating header image.

Yes, and the conference organizer Miranda Gomperts gave us permish to use her pic of sails in the previous post.

They are of sails on the ship which appeared in The Voyage of Charles Darwin, on which she sailed.

I love that image; it's tremendously evocative.

Anonymous, you are an idiot.

Quote mining from from what a man admitted as a young boy then adding a biblical quote is not debate. It's not fast, funny or original. You've had your say here and if you want to babble on some more in this vein, get your own blog.
