Five Atomic Geek Lunch at ANS Meeting
I am in Atlanta, GA for the American Nuclear Society Annual Meeting. Though the use of Twitter, email and face to face communications, five active atomic geeks with web presences got together for lunch. We had a wide ranging conversation that only true geeks could love.
People at the table included:
John Wheeler – This Week In Nuclear
Kirk Sorensen – Energy from Thorium
Nick Touran – What is Nuclear?
Rod Adams – The Atomic Show and Atomic Insights
Jess Gehin – Oak Ridge National Laboratory – Nuclear Science and Technology Division
Note: Upon further reflection and discussion, we have decided to produce a new conversation based show at a different meal. This time we are going to try to ensure that Dan Yurman (Idaho Samizdat) will be there. We are targeting tomorrow evening for a better performance.
For thousands of years
the combination of good eats and good talk
has often been the context of significant social events (proposal of arrangement of marriages between families in the interests of inter tribal peace, graceful proposals of retirement, and eulogies to fallen tribal heroes, etc.).
I think that friends of the Atomic Show Podcast can feel good about episode #134.
What a wonderful, wide ranging and friendly geek fest of significant and amusing atomic tid-bits.
Let’s see a return of this circle of friendship sharing good words around a meal in the service of nuclear advocacy.
Where’s the link to the show?
Chuck – there is no show just yet. We did have another meal and get together, but the ambient noise level was pretty high. It is yet to be determined if I can make a show of it. In the meantime, this particular blog post has been altered so that it is no longer an Atomic Show episode. There is also a gap in the numbering sequence – Show 134 does not currently exist except on the hard drives of subscribers who got it before I removed it from the web.
