Event Details

POSTPONED: Nerd Nite: Geeky Lectures in a Rock Club (Rickshaw Stop)

Starting in July 2022 we don’t see any more events on their calendar. Hopefully Nerd Nite will be back, soon!

What happens when geeks take over a rock club for an evening of drinking and presentations? Find out at Nerd Nite, a monthly lecture-in-a-bar series.

They get smart and interesting people, give them lots of free drinks, and put them on stage in front of a couple hundred tipsy nerds. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s salacious, and it’s always nerdy.

Nerd Nite
Every third Wednesday | Doors at 7 pm; Show at 8 pm
Rickshaw Stop | 155 Fell Street, San Francisco
$15 | All Ages

Nerd Nite resumed in San Francisco on July 21, 2021

Nerd Nite SF #30: Lock Picking, Bioengineering, and Organ Transplants

Going Off-Key: An Introduction to Lock Picking” by Eric Michaud
College of Lockpicking’s esteemed professor/founder leads us through Locksport 101: Discover the inner workings of locks from the 2nd century BCE to the present day; examine a modern pin-tumbler, and find out what makes picking them possible; and, finally, learn to pick a better lock.

“Bioengineering: Building Humans Better or Building Better Humans?” by Kyle Kurpinski and Terry D. Johnson
If you’d like to perceive colors that other people can’t see while enjoying an effortlessly muscular physique covered by a robot exoskeleton that you control with your mind, we’ll talk about how to do that.

“A Modern Day Frankenstein: A Look at the Magic and Strangeness of Organ Transplantation” by Leeza Pachepsky
Am I still “me” with two other people’s DNA inside me? Would you still be you if most of your organs were replaced? I will describe advances in organ transplantation that will allow most organs be replaced and possibly enhanced in the not-so-far future.
