So last night April 9, 2008, the line at Caltech wound around the campus with over 1000 people waiting to catch Stephen Hawking in one of the two auditoriums setup or sit outside around the Beckman and just listen to Hawking.
We waiting in line from around 6:30 and did not make it, short by about 50-75 people from getting into the Ramo.
Would be great if Caltech could also webcast the event. I would be happy sitting home and watching it over the net.
I'll try again next year.
