Alfonso’s universe

Tardy announcement: I’ll be giving a talk tomorrow at Harvard. Details. If you’re in the neighborhood, please look in.

Update: Harvard has posted video of the talk; please have a look, if you’re interested, and you’re equipped to play RealMedia files. I’m not equipped, so I haven’t seen it myself. But I’m sure it’s wonderful (thanks to the AV expertise of Bill Countie and Geoff Maness).

Slides are here (PDF), though they won’t make much sense without the narration.

    Will you be making your talk (or notes) available online? I’m sure it would be of much interest to all your readers.

    Film at eleven. The talk was taped, and I’ll post a note here when the video is available.

    Might there be basis for a future American Scientist column ?
