    I registered, perhaps after it is over we could discuss in this thread.

    Nice to see many are interested. I put a reminder in google calendar, to alert and email me before 4 pm on that date. Google calendar is useful, you should check it out, only for those who use gmail however.

    For those who have already registered I am sure you have or will be seeing this shortly.
    See quote in blue below. I may watch the archived version if the schedule conflicts with work, etc...

    Don't you just love technology ? Seriously, I am betting this is the first time they have tried it and have to work a few bugs out of the system. Since they are making an archive version available it doesn't really matter when it airs. Perhaps Greg will allow Feynman Chat that day too at the same time as the video web cast, that would be nice.

    Rhody... :biggrin:

    yes, i haven't read his (lawrence krauss's) book on feynmnan, but i got the impression that if i had, the lecture would have been nothing new

    still, anything about feynman is usually entertaining, and the lecture is well worth listening to for anyone who hasn't read a biography of him :smile:

    Maybe it is me, but I found Krauss's dialog just a bit annoying, I surmise in part because I measure all others lectures when it comes to Feynman, to Feynman. By that I mean, Feynman draws you in and captivates you in a way that many if not all who ever lectured on Physics could. I was hoping for a Feynman buzz and didn't get it. I have to laugh, I read James Glecks excellent book: "Genius, the life and science of Richard Feynman" at least five times over a number of years, wearing out more than one copy.

    Rhody... :approve:
