Really? Me too. There's one way to sort that out. We should make our
grad students join! I will pressure the ones I know who are interested
in computation to join.

All this is good to hear, though, and those talks sound great. Maybe
this can be a chance to share some more knowledge with CS - we don't
see them very often and it would be good to build new bridges.

One suggestion about making it easy to add to the pages. Is it a smart
idea to suggest sending you html for basic material, and then you can
drop it into your preferred format and link to it from the front page?
I don't foresee trying to do any fancy styling of the information that
I'd post there. _Maybe_ add a picture or two. But it will be primarily
text and hyperlinks.
