Look Out, Nerds: Here I Come

by GK on September 20, 2010 · 3 comments

I’m going to do something a little nerve-racking this Thursday night: give a speech to a mainstream San Francisco audience on the pickup community. Will I have tomatoes, or even worse, Mystery hats thrown at me?

One thing I do know: it will be fun. My presentation will be for Nerd Nite, a monthly bar series put on by my buddy Bart that combines education with alcohol.  Their lectures cover a wide range of nerdy topics, and as many of you know, there’s nothing nerdier than some of the pickup-artist material out there.

If you’re in the neighborhood, the event will be held at the Rickshaw Stop at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, and I’ll be lucky enough to be the third and final presenter. That means the crowd will be drunkest when I’m on stage.

You can find info on my talk here, but you can expect a tongue-in-cheek explanation of some of the terminology and theories out there, and I’ve got a funny little skit planned that’s sure to entertain.

I hope to show some of our fellow geeks that picking up women shouldn’t be so taboo, and maybe I’ll be able to build some bridges. On the other hand, if I should take an iPhone to the skull, I want my body parts donated to nerdy, nerdy science.

Hey Greg,

Are we going to get to see what your presentation was like?

I expect there to be some video on the Nerd Nite site, and I’ll link to it when it’s posted. I’ll also be writing about the talk soon.
