If you are in the New York City area next month, it may interest you to know that I'll be giving a talk to the Amateur Astronomers Assn. of NY about Einstein@Home. It will be on Friday, April 11th, at the American Museum of Natural History, and I believe they said we would start at 6:30 PM, but I'll have to verify that part.

Would you consider recording it and providing it as an mp3/wav download? Not all of us are able to fly thousands of kilometres across the continent but still would find attending interesting.

If yes, I'd recommend any recent mini-disc recorder with a USB 2.0 connection.

Here is more info about the talk I'll be giving on Friday evening, in case anybody can make it. (If you do show up, come say hello after the talk).

We look forward to your lecture at the AAANY meeting on Friday, April 11 at
the American Museum of Natural History. Enter at the West 77th Street
entrance in the middle of the block and proceed to the Kaufmann Auditorium.
Owing to ongoing construction, the 77th Street entrance may have a sign
saying "Staff Only". Ignore that.

We begin at 6:15 p.m. with a 10-minute business meeting after which I
introduce you. Our lectures last approximately 50-60 minutes followed by a
question period usually lasting 10-15 minutes but there is some elasticity
in each of these times.


I don't think a recording will be available, but I may give this talk again soon at another venue where I might be able to convince them to make a recording which we could link to. But no promises on that either.

Note also that Bruce Allen will be giving a talk on the Einstein@Home S4 analysis next week at the American Physical Society meeting in St. Louis. (My talk only covers the S3 analysis, and no real technical details.)

Although there is no audio or video, a copy of this talk is now available from http://www.ligo.caltech.edu/docs/G/G080289-00/ (in either PDF or PowerPoint format)
