Actually, Emilie took a lot of these; most of the Turing Centenary Symposium shots, and many of the Friday-at-Medici shots, are hers. (She doesn't have a Flickr yet, but we're working on that.)
And here are some more from Ed Cormany, Cornell University
And the ones Andy Rogers (Armadillo Research Institute) took

Dear NASSLLI people, welcome to Austin!!!
I'm looking forward to seeing all 214 of you at our two opening evening events tonight:
- Bonnie Webber's talk at 7:30pm will be in the UTC the same building that the classes are in, but on the ground floor, 2.102A.
- Right after that we'll have reception. We've reserved Cafe Medici on Guadalupe & 21st from 8:30pm — everyone is invited for a well-deserved drink, and optionally to engage in building a lego Turing machine. You, know, geeky ice breaker sort of a thing.
Director, NASSLLI 2012
Monday · 8:00 - 9:00 am, 6:30 - 7:00 pm, and between classes, on UTC 4th floor
- Are $5 each, and since we don't have as many as there are NASSLLI participants, please only take one. If you want another, please ask on Friday if we have leftovers/extras.
- Are free for lecturers, presenters, and UT volunteers. Since we don't have terribly many volunteer shirts, though, lecturers should take the plain-ash-grey ones.
NASSLLI Volunteers will be wearing the seafoam-ash-gray t-shirts.
