Nerd Nite Orlando to Celebrate 5-YEAR ANNIVERSARY at Orlando Science Center

NNO_5-year_banner_collage-test_black-white_w-text

“Nerd Nite doesn’t belong to just me. It belongs to any and all those who wish to take ownership. Often times on stage, I’ll tell the audience that they are a vital part of keeping this thing going, but I don’t want to just say that, I want everyone to see it– to feel it. This is why I send out surveys, pass out comment cards at events, and encourage folks to email me with their questions and concerns. The feedback is a necessary ingredient to how I organize and this event literally wouldn’t work if the community didn’t participate.

Two weeks ago, I posted a poll in our Facebook group asking where we should have the 5-year anniversary event. In a very short period of time there was an obvious winner: the Orlando Science Center.

So there you have it, folks. Nerd Nite Orlando will be celebrating five years of thinking and drinking on Thursday, March 8th at the Orlando Science Center. We’ll have 3 new talks, games, prizes, and plenty of other surprises. Be there and be square.”

PRESENTATION #2
“The Problem of the Cinematic Superhero: Everything Changes, But We Must Stay The Same” by Dr Julian Chambliss

Is the superhero the solution or the problem? The rise of the cinematic superhero tells us much about US culture, but it might not be what you think.

Julian Chambliss is an interdisciplinary scholar and writer deeply concerned about real and imagined urban spaces. Within that framework comic pages, urban places, and digital spaces offer an opportunity to explore the intersection of identity, community, and power that shape contemporary society.

PRESENTATION #3
“The Not So Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” by Joshua “TechDev” Walker

“The Not So Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck” is a personalized adaptation of the best selling book “The SubtleArt of Not Giving a Fuck”. Walker will attempt to prescribe brash self help for your life and career through personal examples, unorthodox philosophy and cursing…

Joshua “TechDev” Walker is a military vet turned tech. He enjoys family, Star Wars, concerts and bourbon. He is a founder of Black Orlando Tech and works in the mythical Cloud as a devops manager.
