If you’re looking for something to do next Tuesday evening here in New York, an event called Raising the Bar has recruited 50 people to give talks at bars around the city. There are some quite interesting talks on the list, but I’ll have to miss them, since I’m scheduled to talk about What We Don’t Know About Fundamental Physics at the Blind Tiger on Bleecker Street at 8:30pm. Not sure yet exactly what I’ll talk about, but the general idea is to start by explaining that the current situation is that we have a fundamental theory (SM + GR) that is frustratingly good in terms of agreement with experiment, but also frustratingly incomplete. I’ll see what I can do to explain the ways in which the SM and GR are incomplete, and what current prospects are for doing better.
