There were quite a few people who came to see the founding publisher of Skeptic Magazine, Director of the Skeptic Society, and popular author, Michael Shermer. For more information about him, push the bar below.
He was quite popularNo, I'm not fawning! Well, maybe a little...

And he was gracious enough to pose for a picture with Mynga Futrell, the Co-Chair of the Darwin Day event, as well as Co-Director of The Brights' Net.And for a picture with me
Brian Malow, Earth's Premier Science Comedian was the really hilarious opening act... ...which was actually taped and posted on YouTube. It's worth watching:

The Darwin Day program was extremely interesting, but you don't have to take my word for it. For a video of the entire Darwin Day event, go here.
