Nobel Part II

Posted on October 10th, 2008 by

In my previous post, I commented about the wonderful 2008 Nobel Conference that explored the question, who were the first humans?  Gustavus students, for no charge, could attend the conference, and enjoy the lectures first hand.

For those who didn’t have the time to attend a full lecture, Gustavus set up a pretty impressive website that streamed the conference live on the internet.  Students simply needed to navigate to the site, and boom, they could watch complete lectures from the comfort of their couch.  It was very nice to be able to catch bits and pieces of lectures I didn’t have the time to fully attend.

I visited the Nobel website today, and was surprised and excited to see that now, all of the 2008 lectures are available online.  Anyone can hop on the internet and watch.  I think it is wonderful that Gustavus has posted these important lectures, and I know I will watch some of the talks that I missed this past week.

Check out the website here!
