Over the decades, I have watched the annual induction of one intellectual great after another into the AAAS. Great place to visit; great monthly meetings; great presentations at monthly meetings.

An amazing building for a lecture, or to hold a special event. This historic organization is housed in a somewhat modern building tucked away in Cambridge. Look for the writings on display of some of greatest Americans of all time. A very impressive collection.

A lot of brainniacs hang out here. Discuss every topic. Conversations almost always interesting. If invited... go.
