disassembly_rsn: Appearing at Berkeley in March


Dr. Hawking is to deliver the annual J. Robert Oppenheimer Lecture on March 13 at Zellerbach Hall, according to the article.

The really cool part is that the university is taking advantage of this in a big way to launch an annual program called "On the Same Page", arranged around a significant book and an appearance by the author. Thanks to an anonymous donor, all the freshmen are receiving copies of A BRIEFER HISTORY OF TIME and are being encouraged to read it this winter, and the university will have a series of seminars about Hawking's ideas in the spring.
