I just saw Dr. Krauss give a talk at the Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario on Monday. It was very polished and he's a great speaker. (For those interested in the talk, it can be downloaded at http://perimeterinstitute.media.streamtheworld.com/video/life_the_universe_895451.mp4)

Afterward he was doing booksigning at a tiny, crowded bookstore at the theater. Just as he sat down ready to begin, he wondered aloud if anyone had any scotch handy. I said, "Ah if you were Christopher Hitchens, I'd have come prepared." He was very personable and gracious with his time, and I didn't feel rushed at all.

I commented that I really enjoyed the unmoderated, relaxed discussion between him and Dawkins at Stanford earlier this year. He agreed that format worked really well and said that more events like that would be in the works.

Overall just a great experience meeting him. Like Richard, he's a very easy man to respect.

Thought I'd share. :)
