MP3's Of KQED Radio Show On Crowd Estimation

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!

Media cycle: Radio/Cassette Tape/Video Camera/Computer

Hope you enjoy it:

Me A to Z (A Work In Progress)

Forum programs going back a bit (including this one) are avaiable on the Forum website in RA format. Might be easier to capture the RA feed and convert it to MP3.

Your idiot anti-Americanism should shame and embarass you, but you have no sense.

If you live in San Francisco, you've got plenty of problems to solve without worrying about the world's problems.

I left SF in 1976 as it became apparent that Feminazis like you were the future of SF. You are racist and sexist to the core. Kind of surprising, since you think that you are absolutely the opposite.

Try to cure yourself of the sick addiction to Marxism and feminism, girls. Once you've begun to overcome the psycho-sexual illness afflicting you, you might turn your attention to larger issues.

Seig Heil Nazi Girls!
