The Zombie Research Society, Omaha Chapter

Last Saturday night I went down to the Attic Bar and Grill for the monthly meeting of the Omaha chapter of the Zombie Research Society to meet these guys and see if they were interesting enough to be a part of OSFest 4.0. What I found was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable group of fans. They are going to be a great addition to the program participants at OSFest.

Who are they: The Zombie Research Society (ZRS) was founded in 2007 and is dedicated to raising the level of zombie scholarship in the Arts and Sciences. ZRS Members represent diverse backgrounds, interests, and theories, but are unified in their support of the Society's three foundational principles:

  1. A zombie is a biologically definable, animated being occupying a human corpse.

  2. The zombie pandemic is coming. It's not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

  3. Enthusiastic debate about zombies is essential to the survival of the human race.

    They are also responsible for the podcast: Undead Air.

So check them out and we'll see what this crew does to the Crowne Plaza this July 22-24 at OSFest 4.0 System Upgrade.
