Low Light Photography

As an ex-physicist who has done a few hundred thousand photos (often in very poor light), I do have my own perspective on low light photography. This set of slides summarizes it:

Are We Alone In The Universe?

On Halloween Wednesday 10/31/2012, I held a presentation in the Transcendental Talks group covering the topics of extraterrestial intelligence search. This is a very broad area, spanning from biology to history to cosmology. There was quite a lot of useful discussion. The resulting slidesow is presented here:

Presentation to Google

First of all, I want to thank Konstantin Roslyakov for arranging the presentation with Google.
Next, thank you all for coming — I was really glad to see so many people and such a great interest!

The link to the presentation on the SkyDrive is available here:
