Sorry it took me so long to get these prepared. I wanted to make them available in a few different sizes for people, and had to make sure the pieces were all complete, etc.
This radio broadcasts explains everything you ever wanted to know about crowd estimation and solves many of the myth's about it.
Hear, straight from the sources (the cops, computer crowd estimation experts, historians), how there is no such thing as an "official count" and how everyone is in basic agreement on the count of the January 18, 2003 protest in San Francisco (150,000-200,000), learn about the latest in computer-oriented crowd estimation techniques, and discover how the methods for determining their size and scope of peaceful demonstrations have evolved over the last century.
The situation surrounding the Million Man March is also discussed in detail. Really neat stuff!
