Bay Area: Join us 6/21 to discuss the US government’s scientific data purge


Enlarge / UC Santa Cruz professor Lindsey Dillon will join us at Ars Live.

Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI), whose aim is to preserve this data and make it accessible to the public. At Ars Technica Live #14, we’ll be hosting a public discussion with Dillon about her work.

Join Ars Technica editors Annalee Newitz and Joe Mullin at Eli’s Mile High Club for the live taping of our monthly discussion series. Dillon will talk to us about EDGI, as well as her research on environmental racism in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Ars Live takes place on the third Wednesday of every month at Eli’s Mile High Club in Oakland (3629 MLK Way). They have the best tater tots you’ve ever eaten. So crispy!

Doors open at 7pm, and the live filming is from 7:30 to 8:20-ish (be sure to get there early if you want a seat). Stick around afterward for informal discussion, beer, and snacks. Can’t make it out to Oakland? Never fear! Episodes will be posted to Ars Technica the week after the live events.

The event is free but space is limited, so RSVP using Eventbrite. You can also keep up with the latest Ars Live doings on Facebook. See you soon, Bay Area Arsians!
