Sturmfels' video lectures on Gröbner Bases and Serge Lang passes away

MSRI is launching a new series of video productions, called “New Horizons in Undergraduate Mathematics”. As the MSRI site says, “These videos will showcase great lecturers speaking on topics from current research that are both important, accessible and ready to enter the undergraduate curriculum.”
We’re delighted to see that the first of these lecture series is Gröbner Bases with Bernd Sturmfels. It’s always nice to see commutative algebra and commutative algebraists taking the lead in educational projects like this.
update: You can order the DVD through the MSRI site, and a free downloadable version will be available soon.
update: We also recently learned of the passing of Serge Lang on 12 September 2005 at age 78.
