Who says blogging and podcasting has to be all work and no play? Come and join your favorite nuclear bloggers, reporters, writers and podcasters at an "underground meet up" on Tuesday, November 17 , 2009 at 6:00 PM at the Omni Hotel. Participants will include more than a dozen of today's most influential pro-nuclear voices on the Internet and in print.

Word is spreading quickly and the celebrity list is growing by the day!
I referred to the event as "underground" because while it is being held at the same venue as the ANS Winter Meeting, our gathering is independent of ANS. And hey, "underground"describes independence and spontaneity which is certainly the case. Plus having an 'underground meet up" sounds much cooler than saying we're having a meeting or a party! Anyway, it is sure to be a great time. Who knows, maybe we'll do a live show!
Everyone is invited - just show up! If we overflow the space we'll move to a nearby social establishment!
Light refreshments are being provided by Areva and Cool Hand Nuke. Many thanks to Dan Yurman for his leadership in kicking this off!
