Is anyone going to be in New York on August 9?

It’s summertime, and the living is easy…well, not quite. It’s been a hectic and depressing summer so far. However, I am going to be able to allow myself one weekend away from the drudgery of grant writing. You see, our Seed overlords are repeating the infamous blogger meetup that happened last year in August. Because they lack imagination (and because it’s the time when the largest number of us can make it), they plan on doing it in August again this year. It also turns out that they want to put together some sort of “meet the bloggers” event–in someplace air-conditioned, of course, but to be announced later. The date will be Saturday, August 9, probably at around 3 PM, assuming sufficient interest. More amazingly given my reclusive and arrogant nature, I plan on being there.

Be advised that our benevolent overlords also promise food and swag, and, because of that they’d like to get an idea of the level of interest. If you think you might want to show up to harass some of us ScienceBloggers, leave a comment or you can shoot the organizers an e-mail at nycmeetup@scienceblogs.com.

Of course, if you have no interest in seeing me (and that probably includes most of you–after all, who wants to see a Plexiglas box full of blinking lights?), you can always rub elbows with Jake, Sheril, Brian, Janet, Mark, Bora, GrrlScientist, Josh, and Zuska, at least, and probably several others yet to be announced.
