Today may be the day that CERN announces (http://public.web.cern.ch/public/) they've detected signs of the elusive Higgs Boson. Or they may not, but either way they're streaming the seminar, which begins at 2:00 CET.

The stream (http://webcast.web.cern.ch/webcast/)'s up. Mainly folk nattering to each other in French right now, mind.

The webcast is laggy and their slides are all in Comic Sans.

I think what ATLAS woman said was that something looks quite good but they need more data. On to CMS bloke...

Unless you know all the abbreviations, the video seminar is hard to follow...

Guido's saving the best stuff for last, I think. The great flirt.

And New Scientist sums it up: 'So to conclude...Nothing screaming “I’m a #Higgs (https://twitter.com/#%21/search?q=%23Higgs)” at CMS'
