Tonight in San Francisco the nerds can rejoice at Nerd Salon, an event where you can chat or flirt without fear about comic books, computers, bioengineering, and Battlestar Galactica. Convened by myself, and Electronic Frontier Foundation legal geek Jennifer Granick, Nerd Salon is a place where people will help you with your homework. While drinking. And playing with humanoid robots, supplied by the excellent David Calkins and Simone Davalos of Robogames. Come out between 6-9 PM to the Makeout Room in San Francisco and say hi to your fellow io9ers and sundry nerds.
