Machele and Steve,

Might this be another project for the Bauder Fund? Certainly we would need
to look at copyright issues.

David & Machele,

We have a number of films (size 16 mm?) of Feynman's lectures at Cornell.

If there is some interest in translating these into DVD or another format
then I could see whether we could lend (or give) these out.

Hello Jerry,

Maybe we could get some funding for this research...let's contact the
baseball commissioner...or we can put a "fun competition" spin and contact a
beer company. We can call it the Budweiser PIRA Ball...I can see it...
hundreds of competitors from several schools sliding into base while we
perform video capturing and analysis to determine the fastest slide, the
most efficient slide, and the most crowd pleasing. Just think of it...we'll
get lots of data, advertise PIRA, and we get to drink free beer!

I'll play ball but not too sure about the experimental sliding
(unless we can get one of those Wham-O water slides). Maybe we could watch
some baseball games instead and do some video analysis. Let's see... we'll
need a big screen TV... I foresee this taking a long time...we'll probably
need some refreshments too...
