Not only is that a fascinating article, Jay, the title is lovely! Surely it's a classic SF book by one of the mid-20th cent. Greats?

Here's a targeted ad on my gmail page when your reply appeared:

Myths about Starlight
The truth about Starlight your upline won't tell you.

I don't even want to know what that's about - it's amusing enough as it is! My "upline"? Huh?? Whoever they are, they're keeping secrets about starlight from me!!! 8^O

UC Berkeley web casts of courses there, as a compliment to the MIT courses.

For those who use itunes, the itunesU site on the itunes store hosts the MIT open courseware as well as a bunch of others - Berkeley, Yale, etc. They also have a lot of seminar stuff from colleges around the country - podcasts of various people giving a single talk on their subject of expertise.

I have so much itunesU stuff downloaded to my ipod it is ridiculous.
