This weekend I’m going to be at the University of Nebraska of Lincoln giving a series of talks. I have to say, I’m a bit wowed by the amount of advertising they’ve done. They have cool graphics in particular on this advert for a lunch time talk, a flier posted for my after dinner talk, and a schedule posted for the conference, and even a press release!
I suddenly want to hirer the organizer, the wonferful Kevin Lee, as my publicist.
If you are in the Lincoln area (or like to drive), please come!
More to come…
That is an awesome graphic! I want one for me…. 😉
Of course its a big deal Pamela, haven’t you ever been to Nebraska?
There is _NOTHING_ to do there besides grow/eat/drink/feed corn! Not to deminish your awesome speaking abilities, but it would probably be almost as big of a deal if the headless chicken came to town.
Now if it was a two headed cow, you might be in trouble… =-)
so come to ny and give lectures
Are they going to record the lectures and podcast them?
Knock em dead, Pamela. And get well soon.
Actually, that amount of publicity is what should
be normally done. That is, it’s the level one should
expect for a series of talks that invite public.
Too bad local amateur astronomers weren’t given an
invitation. I found out about it yesterday
and tried to pass it on to other members of the
local astronomy club
which operates a lot of outreach. This includes a
public observatory which is open every Saturday
evening. We’ll see if we can get some folks
to the talk in the evening.
And, no, cows aren’t the only thing we have
in Nebraska. We have a lot of interaction
between the public and Astronomy. And you can
get to dark sky sites in the western part of
the state that are as good as any in the country.
Take a look at one of those “Earth at Night” photos
taken from space and notice the lack of lights
polluting the skies. That’s the site of the
“Nebraska Star Party” held every summer.
