    Fun with Factual Failures

    The first ever Curiosity Club off-site is coming! On June 22nd, 2015, we take over the Hollywood Theatre and try out an experimental new format. As our slogan goes, "We admit that it is impossible to know everything about anything and thus we remain perpetually curious and perpetually novice.” Part of good noviceship is asking questions, and we’re taking our questions to the stage!

    Throughout life human beings are presented with de facto “truths” that are actually totally erroneous. These untrue “truths” may come from pervasive misunderstandings within culture, they may be handed down through institutional systems like education, government or religion, and sometime they come straight from a trusted authority figure like a parent. Big or small, they deserve to be questioned!

    We've asked a power panel of Curiosity Club alumni to share some of the best and worst “facts" that they've ever come across. They will discuss the historical situations that led to these misconceptions, the proof that these “truths" are actually false, and their thoughts and feelings on living these lies.

    Drones, Big Data, and the Next Agricultural Revolution - Science Pub Portland

    This event is actually on the 4th of August! I double checked with the Hollywood Theater!

    Drones, Big Data, and the Next Agricultural Revolution

    Ryan M. Jenson, MS, mechanical engineer, CEO & Co-Founder, HoneyComb Corporation

    Aerial robotics and agriculture aren’t usually associated with one another, at least not yet. However, agriculture is projected to become the largest adopter of drone technology−surpassing all other use cases. To understand the transformation from military to the farm you need to understand the technology, its disruptive nature, and the intricacies of precision agriculture. In this talk Ryan Jenson will discuss drone-based applications, why they’re a game changer, and how drones will become a ubiquitous tool on the farm and in everyday life.

    Ryan is CEO & co-founder of HoneyComb Corporation which specializes in the development and application of drone technology and data services for precision agriculture. He has led HoneyComb to the forefront of the emerging space and is widely considered to be an expert in the technology, capabilities, and its global impact on agriculture. Over the past decade Ryan has played a key strategic and technology role across a range of projects with the USDA, Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, Department of Defense, British Royal Navy, NASA and Fortune 500 companies. His experience encompasses agriculture, big data, remote sensing, aerospace systems, and software to name a few. Ryan holds a master’s degree in mechanical engineering; along with a bachelor’s degree and minor in electrical engineering that he received at age 19. Today his name appears on over 30 publications & presentations and he routinely advises on business strategy, disruptive technology, and leadership.

    Science Pub Portland – Hollywood Theatre is a monthly event open to all ages. No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge! $5.00 suggested cover charge. Tell your friends. We hope to see you there!

    H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival
    Hollywood Theater (Portland)

    The H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival promotes the works of H.P. Lovecraft, literary horror, and weird tales through the cinematic adaptations by professional and amateur filmmakers. The festival was founded in 1995 by Andrew Migliore in the hope that H.P. Lovecraft would be rightly recognized as a master of gothic horror and his work more faithfully adapted to film and television.
