Watch American Astronomical Society events on Ustream

Several other space bloggers including Star Stryder Pamela Gay, Bad Astronomer Phil Plait, and Universe Today's Fraser Cain are in St. Louis, covering the American Astronomical Society meeting. They've been streaming press conferences on Ustream, and later today will also be streaming a special session on New Media and the International Year of Astronomy. I'll be presenting at 12:28 PDT / 19:28 UT, but you should tune in for all the other interesting presentations. I'm not there in St. Louis; I'll be presenting remotely, from my home office.

Here's the schedule for the session, titled "My Space, Your Space, and Virtual Space: New Media E/PO," running from 12:00-13:30 PDT / 19:00-20:30 UTC
