Salt Lake Perl Mongers welcome Damian Conway, August 1st

Salt Lake Perl Mongers, with help from Bluehost, and Utah Open Source are pleased to announce a special presentation by Damian Conway:

Temporally Quaquaversal Virtual Nanomachine Programming In Multiple Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Spacetimes...Made Easy!

Now who could miss that?! (It is free, after all.)

Date: Thursday, August 1st at 7:15pm (Parking is free after 7:00pm.)
Location: Utah Valley University, Liberal Arts Building, Room 101.

Reservations are recommended; visit the Salt Lake Perl Mongers website for details.

The talk will last about 90 minutes, followed by a Q&A session. If you're within driving range of our venue in Orem, UT, or happen to be in Utah August 1st, -- quoting one of our members -- "Your nerd card will be revoked if you miss this."

Here's the synopsis of Damian's talk:

Watch in terror as Damian writes a Perl program to extract square roots using nothing but quantum mechanics, general relativity, and the very fabric of the space-time continuum.

Along the way we'll also investigate: Wittgenstein's dark secret; the diminishing returns of physical computation; Roman philosophy; when Super Science Adventures go wrong; the greatest Lego kit of all time; the secret identity of Sith; carbon logic vs silicon logic; the giants of 1930's physics; elementary spin-half quanta under relativistic motion; CAT scans; Will Smith; bongos; drunken bets involving penguins; algorithmic consistency; God's dice and the problem of free will; intrinsic self-inconsistency; the many worlds outside Copenhagen; and the inventor of stage diving.

What happens when Dirac meets Deutsch meets Damian? Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world!

We hope to see you there.


Hope the video will be available.
