Dear Sam and the MESA community,

Arranging and funding a suitable broadcast is a wonderful idea.
However, it is simply too much for us to address for this first summer school.
It is something we will certainly keep in mind as we organize and seek funding
for future MESA  schools. In the meantime, we expect to be posting "suggested readings"  
before the school starts, and pdf files of the lectures after the school ends.
Not as nice as a broadcast, but its what we can offer for the resources we have.

Please enable participants to attend the Summer School remotely by broadcasting the meeting over the Internet. As a graduate student, it would be much easier for me to acquire funding for access to the Summer School online, say $20 each day, rather than for travel and lodging, which is in the hundreds of dollars.

As a prospective MESA Summer School participant, I would be very willing to pay an access fee in order to support the use of such software and the personnel who facilitate the web conference.
