Hmmm. I might do that. It turns out my Mother's birthday is on the 20th 
and so I will be in the Valley. Also, there will be an interesting 
lecture others may be interested in:

About Gell-Mann
Murray Gell-Mann is one of the leading intellectuals of our time. He is 
arguably the world’s most distinguished theoretical physicist and a 
renowned polymath. Gell-Mann is famous for identifying the fundamental 
building blocks of nuclear matter – the so-called quarks that make up 
most of the mass of atoms – for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 
1969. He entered Yale University at age 15, and went on to make a series 
of stunning discoveries in subatomic particle physics, first at the 
University of Chicago, then Caltech. Following a brilliant career in 
theoretical physics, he helped establish the Santa Fe Institute, a world 
center for the study of complex systems. His book, From Quarks to 
Jaguars, charts the breathtaking scope of his vision and his deep 
understanding of art, literature, world languages and ornithology. 
Gell-Mann’s penetrating insight and encyclopedic knowledge have earned 
him the reputation of genius. Murray Gell-Mann is a consummate 
story-teller and incisive commentator on science, politics, human folly 
and human destiny. His multi-faceted, non-technical address will provide 
a rare opportunity to share in the profound wisdom of this 
extraordinarily creative scientist. Murray Gell-Mann is a Distinguished 
Fellow of the Santa Fe Institute, and author of the popular science 
book, The Quark and the Jaguar, Adventures in the Simple and the Complex
