Everyday Espionage at The [email protected] in St. Petersburg

There's a little 007 in all of us, isn't there? And who wouldn't want to see the world through the eyes of a spy? Tonight you get your chance when former CIA agent Andrew Bustamante (are they really allowed to tell us they're former CIA agents, we wonder?) gives the first of eight talks about how you can use spy techniques in your daily life.

This isn't an ordinary "he talks and you listen" lecture, either. Bustamante will use real-world demos and make the talk interactive. (That doesn't sound at all risky, does it? Nope. Not at all.) And since you don't have to defeat the Russkies in your everyday life — we hope — this series will help you use spy knowledge to get ahead professionally and grow personally. And they don't mean corporate espionage (we think); for example, the first talk focuses on finding patterns that can give you insight into things.

It sounds intriguing, even if they aren't gonna let you use a blow dart on your enemies.
