Mike in Gaudi tower
Below I've listed seminars, colloquia, and conference talks I've been invited to give, mostly so that I can remember where I've been, and what I might have said. If I can figure out how to turn Keynote files into something that can squeeze down the interweb pipes faster than an elephant down a drainpipe, I'll attach links as well.
