Nerd Night Wellington
Welcome to nerd nite wellington: the first (and until recently, only!) Southern Hemisphere version of the rapidly-becoming-global geekery that is nerd nite.
I’m @teh_aimee, otherwise known as aimee whitcroft, and I’ll be your host for all manner of nerdery and beer.
We all know that learning new things is far more fun in the presence of beer and friends. And that’s exactly what nerd nite Wellington is about! We were the first Southern Hemisphere chapter of the global Nerd Nite phenomenon, which has now reached into more than 60 cities across the globe. Three speakers give 15-25 minute presentations on a topic about which they’re ‘nerdy’ (i.e. passionate) on just about any subject you can imagine. Over the 20 nerd nites we’ve had so far, we’ve had talks on witchcraft and geoengineering, video as propaganda and the periodic table’s history, and an awful lot more.
