Public talk - online | Galaxy Zoo Blog. Tonight I went to a talk at SIUE by the astrophysicist Chris Lintott. This was an amazing talk about the latest in using the public to help in massive scientific data classification and his current project the Galaxy Zoo. Everyone should take some time to check out the Galaxy Zoo and to help with projects like this. The human mind is still one of the greatest and underutilized computers we have.

Gay Runs Wind-Aided 9.68 Seconds to Make Olympics | nytimes. I watched this race and it was amazing. Too bad there was a little too much wind or this would have been a new world record. This is still the fastest anyone has ever run the 100 meter. This summer will be one to watch in Beijing.

MPAA says it shouldn’t have to provide evidence to convict pirates because it’s ‘very difficult’ | crunchgear. Has our society really come to this. Is there such apathy to all things that people will just say your wrong and you will be wrong. We founded this country on "Innocent until PROVEN guilty". Not on "well I think they did it so you have to give us money." Please people write your congressperson and get involved in politics. These people represent US.

SIUE: A league of their own | St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Well it looks like SIUE will be joining the Ohio Valley Conference in their move to Division 1. This seems like a good conference and a good fit for the university. I was a little afraid that we would be out played in the conference we joined.
