Meetings are on every 3rd Wednesday of the month

See http://stlouis.pm.org/

TOPIC: - It seems that people are interested in web services using  
PSGI-based servers.   I am currently working on a project where we use  
Plack, so I can show how to write the basics of a server.   Neat thing  
about this approach is that you can debug it easily and then pass the  
code off to a larger-scale service.     I can also show how to install  
and debug code in the "twiggy" server.   This HAD BEEN @ Announce  
Media, LLC 6665 Delmar Boulevard, Saint Louis, MO 63130-4544 BUT a new  
location is in the works!!!    (At least for this month!) (Probably  
Byteworks or ArchReactor)

There is talk about contributing (with other cities PM groups) to a  
new/revised O'Rieley's Perl Cookbook.

every Wednesday at the Brentwood Bread Co. CCN is Wednesday 12 October  
2011 at the Brentwood Square Bread Co. Brentwood Square (#636)   1909

  100 Years of AAVSO – The Role of the Amateur in Astronomy

  Association of
                                                                                                                        Variable 
  Star Observers (AAVSO)

  Stars like the Sun are, fortunately for us, fairly constant in their  
brightness and energy output over millions of years.  But there are  
many other types of stars whose brightness changes measurably over a  
few years, months, days, or even hours.  The study of these variable  
stars has been a major field of astronomy for many decades.  
Professional astronomers rely heavily on amateur observations to  
provide the data for their research.   One hundred years ago, the  
American Association of Variable Star Observers (AAVSO) was formed to  
facilitate professional and amateur collaborations and to maintain a  
storehouse of variable star observations.  Mr. Simonsen will review  
the development and expansion of AAVSO during the past century, and  
look forward to new opportunities for amateur astronomers in the next  
century.  He will also comment on the vital and expanding role that  
amateurs play in the exploration of the universe. Mike Simonsen is the  
Membership Director and Development Officer of the AAVSO.  He has been  
recognized world wide over the past dozen years as a leading variable  
star observer.  Mr. Simonsen has authored twenty research papers on  
his particular interest, the study of cataclysmic variables.

Operations Lead at Pacific Science Center in Seattle, Washington. He  
has done hundreds of shows and has many fans who come back to the  
Science Center specifically to see him. One family brings their son so  
often that his first word when he learned to speak was “Jeff.” Jeff is  
known for his high energy and onstage antics. Don’t Miss his Amazing  
Air Show! It's all around us, making objects contract, expand, and  
sometimes even rise above the ground. Feel the hidden power of high  
and low air pressure through live experimentation! You will experience

Constant    The Universal and Mysterious Fine Structure Constant

Sat, October 22, 10:00am – 11:30am
Crow Hall, Washington University, University City, MO

  The fine structure constant made its appearance in physics at the  
hands of Arnold Sommerfeld in 1916. Its value is 0.00729735308 or  
1/137.0359895. This constant is a measure of the strength of the  
interaction between electrons and photons. Just as the mathematical  
constant pi (3.14...) is dimensionless, so the fine structure constant  
is dimensionless which means that for all physicists throughout the  
entire universe the fine structure constant has the same value. It is  
truly universal. A Nobel Prize awaits anyone who can explain where  
this mysterious constant comes from. But is it really a constant?  
Maybe yes, maybe no.
