Advertizing events - ideas?

We had a great turn out for the CFI WEIRD SCIENCE event. The next two events are:

GOD IN THE LAB (extraordinary findings from leading scientific researchers) March 21st.
RELIGION AND SCIENCE (with Mary Warnock and Simon Singh) April 25th.

Need to stir up interest. If you have any suggestions as to how we can get free publicity (or cheap publicity) do let me know. We will let Time Out, etc know. But what else..?

Thanks
Stephen

Dunno whether you lump them in with TimeOut but Newscientist seem to be keen on the theme. (see article here )

Invite me to be a guest speaker, it seems to be working for your blog :-D

Hey, Sye, when you going to let me post comments on your website? Fairs fair, after all!

When I need a first hand demonstration of how an atheistic PhD in Philosophy cannot account for logic, or the basis on which he proceeds with the assumption that it will hold, according to his personal worldview.

Or when I miss you, whichever comes first :-D

Hey Sye - I have suddenly seen the light!

Yes, like probably most professional philosophers, I don't claim to be certain which theory of logic is correct (though I gave you three accounts, two of which I quite like, none of which you have been able to refute).

You are right, that certainly DOES give you a great argument that God exists. Amazing!

And the fact that I'm not sure how crop circles are formed is also a great argument that aliens made them.

Wow! I am going to be able to prove so much with this form of argument!

You're a genius. You MUST MUST publish this in one of leading peer reviewed journals of philosophy as soon as you can - it's going to revolutionize philosophy! You owe it to humanity. Thank you so much for finally being able to prove so simply what the some of the greatest minds over thousands of years bahev failed to prove - that God exists!

Eventbrite is a good system for promoting events and selling tickets online. I think they charge about 50p on each £10 ticket, but you don't have to muck around with stamps and cheques. It integrates into facebook so you get the viral marketing effect going.

Good idea Maya

Can't believe you're missing the obvious here - advertise on the busses!
