Victor Wallis gave our first lecture today. It went very well. There was a lot of good discussion and Victor gave a very nice summary of how we got in our present situation. We should have video of the lecture soon. We also have an updated schedule with more speakers confirmed. We are trying to figure out the best times for starting the lectures. Any feedback in the comments section would be welcome. We were thinking of moving the weekday lectures to 6pm. But we have many more teach-in this week.
