Attend the Lindau Meetings

… In the privacy of your own home or office, via the Intertubes!

Here is how the Lindau meetings describes itself:

The Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings provide a globally recognised forum for the exchange of knowledge between Nobel Laureates and young researchers. The original idea of the meetings goes back to the two Lindau physicians Dr. Franz Karl Hein und Professor Dr. Gustav Parade and Count Lennart Bernadotte af Wisborg, a member of the Swedish royal family who quickly became the spiritus rector behind the Meetings. It was he who envisioned the Meetings as a “window to the world” for the international scientific elite of today and tomorrow.

At least some of the lectures are available to you on line. Here It’s pretty cool.
