This weekend the TRB data committees will be having their mid-year
). As part of it, the
Subcommittee on Census Data for Transportation planning will be hosting
a session entitled "The Reality of the American Community Survey for
Transportation", Sunday, June 27th, 1999, 4:00 PM. The session will be
held in the Swissotel Washington--The Watergate, Washington, D.C.
I have just learned that the Center for Transportation Analysis at the
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) together with the TRB will be
conducting the first live Internet broadcast of a TRB session during our
session. Internet users will be able to see the overhead transparencies
(and other visual materials) while listening to the talk in real time.
Users will also be able to send questions to the speaker through the
chat room connection provided.
You will be able to access the live broadcast (and related information
about this event) through a link in http://www-cta.ornl.gov
notice that in order to see and hear the live broadcast you need to have
installed in your computer the Windows Media Player software. Use the
"Test" button on the top bar of the web page to determine whether or not
this software is installed in your machine. If it is not, then use the
"Download Windows MP" button to get a free copy of the software. After
downloading Windows Media Player you must proceed to install it.
Thanks and questions to Oscar Franzese of Oak Ridge for this,
