Just a quick note to point out the growing volume of video and stills of the SUSY06 conference that is being produced at an incredible rate by the Cosmic Variance commenter who calls himself "chimpanzee". He has a handheld device that launches video and stills to the web seconds after recording it. All very splendid, if you like that sort of thing. He wisely got authorisation from the organizers of the conference to attend in this capacity, and now he's got more bold and is sitting right up front in some of the sessions and even doing interviews! For example, here are some with physicists Raman Sundrum, and Angela Olinto (she says "hi" to Sean in the interview, by the way). The links to the video blogs are here: http://susy06.textamerica.com (stills+video) http://susy06.blogspot.com (stills+video) and at iTunes Music Store as the "SUSY '06″ video-podcast. (The Cosmic Variance blog is not responsible for any content found there.) The pictures and interviews are actually a nice window into physics and physicists even if you're not an expert, and I'm doing this post because it would be a shame if they went unnoticed. I've got to say that chimpanzee did this all without my help or encouragement, so I can take no credit for this resource! In fact, I was doubtful and declined to help. He just took the initiative anyway and went through the proper channels himself to get it all authorized..... and the results are great! Well done..... -cvj
