Brain Knows Better Live at Nerd Nite NYC

 Ali Mattu live at NYC's Nerd Nite!

I am honored to be kicking off the sixth season of NYC's Nerd Nite!

What's Nerd Nite?

Here's how the lovely folks at Nerd Nite HQ describe it: 

Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 50 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along. And there are often bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans as well.  Imagine learning about everything from math feuds or the science of the Simpsons, to the genealogy of Godzilla or debunking beer myths. Fun, right? As nerds and non-nerds like to say, Nerd Nite Is Like the Discovery Channel™…with Beer!

What Am I Presenting? 

The three easy steps to create Star Trek's utopian future! Here's a sneak peak:

On April 5th, 2063, humans make first contact with Vulcans and usher in an era of peace. Poverty, disease, and war are eliminated and humanity commits to peaceful exploration of the stars. So, with less than 50 years to go, what would it take to make Star Trek’s utopian future a reality? It’s simple – all we have to do is end prejudice, foster global cooperation, and develop empathy for aliens. This presentation will outline how we can make it so.

Be There and Be Square!

Join me and boldly go where many nerdlings have gone before!
