Cafe Scientique

The Sacramento Bee writes about science cafes springing up around the globe:

"In a lecture theater, you expect to be lectured to, but in a cafe, you expect to have a conversation," said Duncan Dallas, a retired TV producer who founded the first "Cafe Scientifique" in the English city of Leeds in 1998.

Today, there are a couple of hundred similar venues scattered from Tokyo to Warsaw, Poland, to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, some unrelated and others modeled after Dallas' venture. American science cafes have sprung up in Chicago, Dayton, Ohio, Los Angeles, New York and at least two dozen other cities, although not in Sacramento, so far."
