Thanks to Ian for sharing his "Margaret Wertheim at Sydney Uni" and for Kali
in pointing out how useful some sort of transcription is for ASC events.  I
was thinking the same thing the other day as I read through some of these
emails how nice it would be to share in some of these great events being put
on across Aus.  How can we gain access? Could the ASC fund a webinar for
some of these events?  Something along the lines AusSMC?
