CAP2010 now ongoing

The Communicating Astronomy with the Public 2010 conference is now in full swing. Those of us not at the venue can follow the conference through the tweets of others using the #CAP2010 hashtag. As you can see from the clip below, hard science is presently being debated in Cape Town, South Africa:

One thing that has been tweeted around is a link or two related to a talk on Aboriginal Astronomy. The talk centres on a project for collecting aboriginal astronomical stories, but also mentioned this website on aboriginal astronomical art. Sounds rather like a good candidate for the new The Sky of Our Grandparents project.
