There’s a wonderful little segment about our World of Warcraft researcher’s guild (a European research network that happens to meet in the world we study) on tonight’s pop science show Schrˆdingers katt – the segment’s already online at NRK’s site. It stars Torill Mortensen, our guild mistress (she does a brilliant job of it too) with some bits of a guild meeting, too. Here’s Torill’s report, and here’s a link straight to the video. Well, straight to the video in NRK’s interface, which doesn’t quite work in Firefox.

I just wish someone would upload it to YouTube so I didn’t have to fret over the bad Windows Media Player compatibility with my Mac.
