Autumn 2010 Events

As you may noticed by the paucity of posts and updates, that I’m not maintaining the Fête Society like I once was. I graduated in May and since being hooded, I’ve been wearing my science hat more prominently. I decided that my science blogging would get my full attention.

If you’re interested in following Dr. Lee then feel free to check me out.
Urban Science Adventures! © is my blog about urban ecology, conservation, and environmental education. I also talk about diversity and science education to broader audiences. It’s a perfect resources for teens and families who are interested in learning more about science in a friendly, fun, and engaging way.

SouthernPlaylisticEvolutionMusic is my newest science blog - Evolutionary Science remixed with phat beats. It’s a blog about evolution and sexual selection but I explain all of the scientific concepts through hip hop songs. I’m having a blast and folks are really responding to it. This site is definitely for adults because it’s almost always about sex and dating.
You can also follow me, as Dr. Lee, on Twitter - @DNLee5 and on Friend Feed - DNLee.

I’m not closing the Fête Society page or the email account, but I am officially suspending emails and weekly updates. However, I WILL maintain the Fête Society Twitter account and Facebook Fan page, and will continue to share interesting events that catch my attention via those tools.

In fact, here are some great upcoming events (that I will be participating in) that I do want you to know about and check out.
