Hey Floyd, was wondering if the OASIS thing has gotten underway yet, my friend is about 6'2" and quite brawny-looks chubby but ain't-his name again is Steve Sjostedt (shoss'-ted) Ph-D in environmental chemistry, omnivore, or another way of saying, when he is eating, don't get your hand too close to his plate. He is a likeable, down-to-earth kinda guy.

Well, I'm not sure they are all here, but there's certainly a whole herd of them out a NARL already!

I'm not sure when I'll be likely to run into your friend, but I'll be visiting BASC tomorrow for certain, so there is some possibility.

The BASC Outreach program this weekend is a presentation by Michele Ridgeway, and the blurb they released on it says:

"Hear about the discoveries of new species found in Alaskan waters.
Glimpse the ancient Bering Sea Land Bridge and extinct, microscopic
creatures. Michelle will tell the story of her submarine being attacked
by a squid and the visit by a diving porpoise. Learn about the Geology
of the canyons, their early formation and massive size and the biodiversity
of corals, sponges, fishes and other exquisite marine life within the canyons."
One of the things I do at each of these presentation is photograph the "crowd". If the presentation itself is something that can be photographed well, I shoot it too. But that's sort of hit or miss because most of the presentations are slide shows with the lights out, so generally it's difficult to take interesting pictures.

But, if I can't locate Steve, I may just post a picture of everyone there and see if you can pick him out. :-)
