    Was an ok talk. I was hoping for something on string theory. I just wonder who is going to write all the software for the "mirror, mirror, on the wall" and what are people of average intelligence going to be doing 50 years from now.

    Well me and posse went. The parking structure really was not too far. We sat in a classroom to enjoy the talk. Gaby loved the fact that this was another of her favorite TV people that she got to see. Now we need to find Morgan Freeman.... Anyway, it was refreshing to hear sciencey talk instead of politics and sports!!

    A very entertaining speaker. Somewhat lacking in lecturing ability, at least to a general interest audience like this.

    Got sidelined to a side room, and, he didn't talk about string theory. I enjoyed the talk of future technologies, as I always do, but that's not why I went.

    I'm really getting tired if these people not having popular lectures in bigger rooms. 40 min early and I'm not in the main auditorium! At least there is streaming video in the room I'm in.

      I know. At least they used Lawler for Bill Nye. Not the best venue for a lecture, but at least everyone gets in.

    My cell is[masked] if anyone wants to touch base. If I get there early I'll be glad ti get an extra seat.

    Besides the parking lot half a mile away...is there any other parking?

    February 7, 2013

    • Brad

      Someone who frequents the campus more often than I could answer better. In the past, I have found parking near the Math & Science Building along Evans Ave on the east side of campus, but no guarantee.

      thanks!

    Just a reminder, we will not have a meetup before or after this event.

    Also, get there early! If you do not arrive early, you may not get into the main lecture hall and may have to view the lecture via live video in another room.

      I'll try to be there a little before 6:00.

      I wish there was a way to save seats or places in line, but it's pretty much everyone for her/himself. The place filled fast for Neil Degrasse Tyson and I expect this event will be the same.

    Looking forward to the event!
