Come join the MIT Club of San Diego to Celebrate Isaac Asimov’s centennial.
January 2, 2020 marks the centennial of the birth of Isaac Asimov, the most prolific writer in US history and a colossus of science-fiction (I, Robot; Foundation series). Asimov authored or edited more than 500 books of astounding scope (including 9 of the 10 categories of the Dewey Decimal Classification).
Richard Lederer, language columnist for the Union-Tribune, will illuminate the literary Asimov and the man himself. Food and beverages (including wine and beer) will be served.
WHEN: Wednesday, January 22, 2020, 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
WHERE: Takeda Pharmaceuticals, 9625 Towne Centre Dr, San Diego, CA 92121
To further whet your appetite, here is a collection of notable Asimov quotes:
- Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
- People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
- The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not ‘Eureka!’ (I’ve found it!), but ‘That’s funny…’
- The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.
- Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.
- Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what’s right.
- I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.
- If knowledge can create problems, it is not through ignorance that we can solve them.
- Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only kind of education there is.
Please join us for the 3rd Annual San Diego GenX Feb Club
Who: GenX Alumni — spouses/partners too!
When: Monday, February 3, 7pm-9pm
Cost: No cover charge; everyone will pay for their own.
Registration: None required, but it’s respectfully requested: RSVP HERE by Feb 2 so I can update the reservation as needed.
Join us for the monthly happy hour as we explore one of San Diego’s new bars in Normal Heights.
While SKA is a little misnomer, there is no ska music played there, there are some tasty bites and cocktails offered. Happy hour specials end at 6pm, so note the earlier start of 5:30 for those who want to take advantage of those specials: 6 classic cocktails for $6, limited selection of bites for $6 as well as beer & wine specials.
We will be set up in the common space to the left of the bar. As a Penn volunteer is coordinating February’s event, look for some Penn paraphernalia to designate the group location.
Bring your own name tags
