    Shoot, there seems to be a problem with the live webcast. I tried numerous times to view it, in both Firefox and IE to no avail.
    Perhaps it will be available for later viewing?

  2. Hi Alison –
    Yes, unfortunately we’re having trouble getting the webcast up, but we are taping, and will be posting the entire lecture at the same url in a couple days. I’ll be posting to the blog when we have it up.
    Sorry everyone!
