There should be an .ogg file of the press conference on jws. There should also be a PDF file with support materials from this. According to the CPC, this represents pretty much everything they wanted to say in the press conference anyway... --LauraHale (talk) 19:53, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

Image notes[edit]

I spent the best part of two hours trying to get these uploaded. I'm tired and frustrated. (One of my plug adapters does not work. The British power killed it. my iPad doesn't want to recharge. my iPhone doesn't want to work.) I will get to the fair use when I can. They are all CC-BY-NC. They were all taken by me. They were all taken at the press conference. --LauraHale (talk) 19:55, 28 August 2012 (UTC)
