Monday morning talks

This mornings talks were about scaling relations of galaxies and the formation of bulges and disks. SOme interesting points were raised, e.g. that the bimodality of galaxy distributions in a color-magnitude diagramm can rather be seen as a bimodality in Bulge-to-Dike ratio than in galaxy type itself. Should we finally abandon the Hubble "tuning-fork" of classification? (Talk by S. Driver)

Rather than catching up with the past talks, I will try some "live-blogging" from now on.
