Chris Mooney in New Orleans

The talk is “Science at High Speeds: Hurricanes, Politics and the Battle Over Global Warming”, at 5PM at the Lavin-Bernick Center on the Uptown campus and it’s part of the Focus the Nation event. Since Chris is a scienceblogger, I’d like to extend a warm blog-welcome to him from my adopted city.

Check back here Wednesday for live coverage of the event. I haven’t heard of any plans for streaming this, and I’ve been wanting to play around with Qik(my review), so this seems like a good time. I don’t have much experience with this sort of thing, so I can’t vouch for the visual or auditory legibility of anything I stream, but check out my test recording and if you are watching and have questions, you can send me an IM on jabber/GTalk.

The stream is here(FYI: this is service is alpha and may have network or other issues)
My profile page is here, in case the embedded stream is showing something from someone else (like it is now).
The parade is going to make getting from downtown a little difficult, so if you’re planning on being there in person, come early.

It looks like I’ll be fairly limited in terms of battery life in what I can show, but I have a good feeling it will show up on his YouTube channel.
